Solstice Watch

Dates: 12/21/2014 - 12/21/2014

Location Sacra Via Park
Between 3rd and 2nd St
Marietta, OH
740 373-4180

Keeping track of time and the passage of seasons is something we take for granted. There is a timepiece or calendar in virtually every room, usually as close as our wrist or the bottom corner of our computer screen. Tracking time was vitally important to prehistoric peoples as well, but they did not have Timexes or wall calendars. One function of the large earthwork complexes like the one found at Marietta was to track the passage of time through astronomical observations. Thus a major alignment of the Marietta site, along the parallel walls of "Sacra Via," points to the winter solstice sunset. If the weather cooperates, we will view the sun setting on the western Muskingum Valley bluff around 5 PM in near perfect alignment with Sacra Via. Maps a brief commentary will be provided by The Castle's archaeologist Wes Clarke.
