American archaeologists have unearthed an unknown circular structure approximately 200 feet in diameter while excavating a 2,000 year old earth-works site close to Fort Ancient State Memorial, according to Associated Press.

"The reaction is 'Wow!'" Jack Blosser, Fort Ancient's site manager, said of the new find. Blosser said the last major discovery at the site was the remains of several homes found during excavation for a museum and garden area built in 1998.

Fort Ancient Earthworks is situated on the east side of the Little Miami River, on a bluff rising about two hundred and seventy feet above the valley floor. Earthen walls follow the irregular edge of a hill that is practically isolated from the general upland area by deep ravines.
