Neinast: How the Newark Earthworks connects to the moon

Most readers know that the Octagon earthworks in Newark are somehow related to the Moon. But how are they related and what did the ancient mound builders know about the moon?. Ancient peoples would have noticed the movements of the sun and the moon and the progression of the seasons. Each day as summer approached, the eastern rise point of the Sun moved north. It then hovered around the same place (which we call the solstice northern maximum) for about a month before heading south again. It continued heading south into the winter, hovered at what we call the solstice southern maximum, and then headed north again. They also would have noticed that in the summertime, the Sun stays in the sky for a long time each day, but in the wintertime, it lingers but a short while.
