Prehistoric Indian Village Site and Cemetery Near Madisonville, Ohio

Earnest A. Hooten(1898)

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

The famed Madisonville site yielded over 1,400 burials and thousands of artifacts and features that include mounds, house circles, cache pits, etc.   This site exhibits both  prehistoric and protohistoric features and artifacts and is probably one of the latest Ft. Ancient sites that were occupied as the Europeans explored into the interior of Ohio.  Of particular interest are the proto-historic artifacts composed of early trade goods of European manufacture. 

The Ft. Ancient Culture and European contact is further discussed in our offering of the recently published title Societies in Eclipse.

This 7" x 10",  203 page, soft cover, facsimile reprint contains 29 full page plates and a foldout map of the site.  $17.95
