Surveys Kentucky's archeological wealth from the Ice Age to today's efforts to preserve historical sites in the face of development. The ten contributing archeological historians conduct a guided tour into the communities and economies of the region's hunters and gatherers, woodland cultivators, Mississippi farmers, and post-colonial structures that include the Civil War and industrial remains of the 19th and 20th century. Each essay corresponds with the others in terms of delineating influences, cultural differences, and settlement patterns. Includes illustrations and photographs.
