On the July trip to Cincinnati, we finally got a look at Fort Ancient. About the time of Christ the natives living in southern Ohio built a ring of earthworks five and a half kilometers long surrounding a level hill top. No one knows why. My guess is they built it as a bison trap. The long arms of the northern berms would funnel a stampeding herd through the narrow opening into the southern ring. Only a few men would be needed at the opening to prevent the herd's escape. Of course this theory would be more tenable were someone to discover that there actually were bison in Ohio.
