The Archaic Period in the Falls of the Ohio Region of Kentucky

Author(s): C. Michael Anslinger

Year: 2000


This document is a brief overview of the Archaic culture sequence for the Falls of the Ohio Area in Kentucky and Indiana. Based on a suite of radiocarbon dates temporal limits for the Archaic period have been established at approximately 9950 to 2950 B.P. within the region, though dates extending to 2750 B.P. would not be unexpected. The Archaic, which is traditionally divided into Early, Middle, and Late sub-periods, represents a period of time when pre-ceramic hunter-gatherer populations occupied the region. The paper covers these divisions of the Archaic period within the Falls Area along with its cultural chronology.
