In conjunction with this year’s conference, the Kentucky Archaeological Survey and Corn Island Archaeology have organized a special session on Native American use of the Falls of the Ohio River region. The intent is to provide an opportunity for invited researchers to present on their latest data and interpretations, and to interact with others interested in the archaeology of this geographically important area. Informal sessions will be held Thursday and Friday (March 2 & 3) and formal papers from invited speakers will open the conference on Saturday, March 4. On Friday afternoon there will be an opportunity to examine projectile point and ceramic collections from the Falls of the Ohio River region. This will be followed by a tour of Locust Grove. If you have any questions concerning this special session please contact David Pollack.
