Title: Adena, Hopewell, Ftt. Ancient and Mississippian map
Post by: ShifuCareaga on February 27, 2017, 11:30:06 PM
Hello all,
As part of my research I decided to create this map
https://www.google.com/maps/@36.6532787,-91.9916534,5z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!6m1!1s10CK4UUKBl4urcvV5bPAiYjqb3K0 (https://www.google.com/maps/@36.6532787,-91.9916534,5z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!6m1!1s10CK4UUKBl4urcvV5bPAiYjqb3K0)

It is not done yet, obviously KY needs some things added. Also I plan to color co-ordinate the cultures (by creation era). Will have it all done by this weekend.

It's just helpful reference tool. Enjoy.

Nice!
Will you be adding more sites on the map.  I feel a lot can be learned by studying a fairly complete map of ancient earthworks.
Have you been to the Catlettsburg serpent mound (at least what is left of it), to compare with others?

Keep up the good works...

No... can you PM me more specifics? Yes I will add more... but the research is ongoing and the KY Heritage Council is not helping me at all.  :-[

Don't forget about Fort Hill!

http://www.google.com/maps/place/Fort+Hill+Earthworks+%26+Nature+Preserve/@39.0913344,-83.4295104 (http://www.google.com/maps/place/Fort+Hill+Earthworks+%26+Nature+Preserve/@39.0913344,-83.4295104)

It's got arches, too. Five that I've seen, and a sixth I have yet to visit.

So who do you think hung out around the tributaries of Rough River in Grayson co.?

Dad has land that has numerous native signs on it, hominy holes, etc.... (lots of them).  I've always wondered if it was Shawnee hunting groups or someone much earlier.  My son found a point under a creek not long ago and my Dad said it was a Clovis but who knows....

Clovis points have a certain design, typically fluted. The most likely is to be Woodland era.

It'd be difficult to guess. Even neighboring mounds have been known to have different cultures completely.
