Since 2015, we have been working with the extraordinary artist Marcia K Moore, who has produced artistic recreations of living Adena-Hopewell people. Several of these recreations appear in our book, "Ages of the Giants".
For this project, Marcia was sent several files of photographs of actual Adena skulls, from which she selected specimens to reconstruct facial features. Other aspects of Adena anthropology were gleaned from excavation reports and Smithsonian archives to create several height ranges for the living Adena and Hopewell. The links below lead to the areas of our websites, where some of these images can be viewed.
Our site features an excerpt from "Ages of the Giants" explaining the origins of the skeletal material used for the recreations:
