Aedh is a form of the name Adena.

The Adena people were prehistoric American Indian peoples that lived in the Ohio River valley and the adjacent regions of Indiana, West Virginia and Kentucky from about 800 B.C. to 1 A.D.

The Adena people were prehistoric American Indian peoples that lived in the Ohio River valley and the adjacent regions of Indiana, West Virginia and Kentucky from about 800 B.C. to 1 A.D. They were the first of three civilizations known as the Mound Builders. The Hopewell and the Mississippians were the second and third such civilizations.

The Adenas built cone shaped mounds for the dead. They also built animal shaped mounds that might have had a religious meaning. The burial mounds were built by pouring earth from thousands of baskets on top of a burned mortuary building probably as part of a burial ritual. Often a new mortuary structure would be placed atop the new mound and the process would occur again. After a number of these cycles, a quite prominent earthwork would be formed. The finished mounds generally ranged in size form 20 to 300 feed in diameter.

Although the Adenas were mostly known for these mounds there were also notable for their agricultural practices, pottery, artistic works and extensive trading network.

The Adena culture was named for the large mound found on the estate of Governor Thomas Worthington called Adena, in Chillicothe, Ohio. Thomas Worthington recorded that he chose Adena as the name for his estate because it referred to "places remarkable for the delightfulness of their situation".
