Abstract: Recent archaeological investigations of a prehistoric mound near Everett in northern Summit County have revealed evidence of Hopewellian subsistence and ceremonial activity. Historical accounts describe the removal of exotic artifacts and cremation burials from a limestone crypt within the mound during 1856 road-building activities. Recently excavated artifacts include comer-notched projectile points, galena crystals, and cut bone and teeth. Human remains were also recovered. The ceramics indicate a period of mound construction around A.D. 300. Analysis of unmodified faunal materials suggests a floodplain occupation, with ceremonial activities occurring in late spring.
