Current Archaeological Research in Kentucky is a compilation of research presented at the Kentucky Heritage Council Archaeological Conference. Available to the public, this publication is meant to highlight the diversity of archaeological projects being conducted across the Commonwealth.
Since 1987, nine volumes have been published and are available on the Kentucky Heritage Council website. Topics covered in these publications range from Paleoindian Period stone tools to 19th Century Farms and everything in between. Later this year, Volume 10 will be published online!
Volume 10 is a compilation of papers from the 2005 conference. It will also include a memorial for Mr. Bill Huser and his two papers presented at the KHC archaeological conference in 2018.
Three of the nine volumes previously published have papers that cover special themes or topics: Woodland Period, Mississippian Towns, and Prehistoric Settlement Patterns in Big Bottoms. It is our goal for Volume 11 to have the theme of Western Kentucky Archaeology.
Archaeologists interested in having their research published in Volume 11 should present at the 37th Annual Kentucky Heritage Council Archaeological Conference (February 28-March 1, 2020) in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Further details about the conference will be available in late September.
