Excerpt from Annual Report of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution, 1874

The explorations and researches were commenced in the early part of 1868, and continued to the close of 1869. In the entire investigation, and in presenting an outline of the explorations and researches; I have endeavored to accomplish two results, viz: the accurate description of the aboriginal remains, and the collection of facts which bearin any manner upon the obscure history of the ancient inhabitants of this region. With the limited means at my command, and with numerous pressing professional duties and cares, I was unable to carry forward the explorations upon the scale which their importance appeared to demand, but it is earnestly hoped that these investigations, h imperfect, will be found an addition to knowledge which a point of departure for future explorers in this interesting field. They will not be without practical result if they shonld serve to form a basis for the comparison of the crania and works of art of the races of the stone -age of Tennessee and Kentucky with those of other parts of our country and of foreign climes.
