Archaeological Atlas of Kentucky

Reports in Archaeology and Anthropology Volume II

Archaeological Survey of Kentucky

Webb and Funkhouser - 1923

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

Published by the University of Kentucky, this work is a comprehensive listing of over 1,200 archaeological sites of  the Bluegrass state encompassing mounds, villages, burials, shell heaps, etc.    

This survey locates and briefly describes a total of one thousand, two hundred and fifty-five individual prehistoric sites in Kentucky. In some cases several types of individual remains are to be found on a single site. For the purpose of this summary, each type of individual remains has been counted separately. Thus if a site contained a village, a mound and a cemetery, these have been listed under separate heads.
The various types of archaeological remains and the number of each which have been located are as follows:

Mounds (earth)
Mounds (shell)
Earthworks and fortifications
Camp and village sites
Cemeteries
Rock shelters
Caves (inhabited)
Springs and licks
Workshops and quarry sites
Caches
Pictographs
