The Fortified Hill Earthwork is one of six Hopewell Culture earthworks on a six mile stretch of the Great Miami River included on a map in Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley published as the first publication of the Smithsonian Institution in 1848. Today it is the only one of the six that survives, and it still preserves its distinctive and impressive gateways. This significant site will be auctioned on September 28, 2019.

Its survival is critically threatened and in jeopardy of being lost. The Archaeological Conservancy needs to raise $400,000 for the project. In return we would receive an archaeological conservation easement over the property allowing us to manage the cultural resources and ensure the preservation of the site.

We need your help to raise these funds.  If you make a pledge, we will contact you for the money if we are successful at auction. Please note in the Comments box if you are currently a Conservancy member. Thank you!
