Art of the Ancients: The Ohio Valley
The distant past will come alive as visitors cross the bridge in time to Art of the Ancients: The Ohio Valley, the Southern Ohio Museum's new permanent collection of 10,000 Native American Artifacts from 1,500 to 8,000 years old. Starting more than 3,000 years ago and lasting about 1,500 years, these ancient cultures proposed throughout southern Ohio and northern Kentucky, settling primarily along the streams and rivers feeding the Ohio River. While many details about the Adena and Hopewell people remain unknown, articles crafted from stone, bone, shell and other durable materials managed to survive to offer important clues about the lives of their creators.
