Abstract

investigated, many of which could represent opportunities for landscape architects to engage in interdisciplinary research with archaeologists. Lynott explores such topics as the meaning behind the landscape forms, the evolution of landscapes through time, and understanding the cosmological aspects and inter- site alignments of the earthwork complexes. The book fi nishes with two appendices, one that details the construction chronology of the Hopeton Earthworks in which the author was highly involved and a second, which describes Ohio Hopewell ceremonial sites open to the public. A rather extensive bibliography follows. In summary, Hopewell Ceremonial Landscapes of Ohio offers an extensive overview of these fascinating landscapes from an archaeological perspective. Although not written for a landscape architecture audience per se, it offers a valuable resource for those landscape architects interested in understanding the Hopewell Mound builders' contributions to the art of landscape architecture in America.
