The 34rd Annual Kentucky Heritage Council Archaeology Conference will be hosted in partnership with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Kentucky Archaeological Survey, Corn Island Archaeology, and the Kentucky Organization of Professional Archaeologists. The conference will take place at the Ramada Downtown North in Louisville, Kentucky.
In conjunction with this year’s conference, the Kentucky Archaeological Survey and Corn Island Archaeology have organized a special session on Native American use of the Falls of the Ohio River region. The intent is to provide an opportunity for invited researchers to present on their latest data and interpretations, and to interact with others interested in the archaeology of this geographically important area. Informal sessions will be held on Thursday and Friday (March 2nd and 3rd) and formal papers from invited speakers will open the conference on Saturday (March 4th). On Friday afternoon there will be an opportunity to examine projectile point and ceramic collections from the Falls of the Ohio River region. This will be followed by a tour of Locust Grove.
