Vanishing Vocabulary – Concept (In Process Images)

The Hopewell ruins at Fort Ancient are evidence of a culture that has vanished. The society’s people have passed away, the artifacts been buried, and the structures declined. But furthermore, and perhaps most importantly, as new cultures develop and new ideas come into favor, the old culture’s viewpoint – its particular way of interpreting the world and its interactions – is lost. As a ceremonial and social site, Fort Ancient strongly embodies such degradation.
