Summary

Site 15OH161, an east-facing sandstone rockshelter site in Ohio County, western Kentucky, yielded evidence of multiple occupations. While only the Archaic and Early to Middle Woodland occupations were sampled for pollen analysis and radiocarbon dates reported for features from this site range from 6050 ± 40 BP to 4230 ± 40 BP, there is also a Late Woodland/Mississippian component. Only the Archaic components were in good context, therefore. Considerable disturbance as a result of human looting and animal (hog) activity was noted.
