SunWatch is a 13th century American Indian Village along the Great Miami River in Dayton, Ohio. Archaeological excavations from 1971-1988 exposed a planned stockaded Fort Ancient period settlement with astronomical alignments. The village is now partially reconstructed and features a Museum/Interpretive Center.
