Abstract

I began this project after learning of a prehistoric petroglyph in the area that had not been documented in the state records. Studying and preserving the archaeological evidence of the Native American peoples who lived along the Ohio River is essential to understanding the history and development of culture in the area. I visited the site, located in the Green Bottom Wildlife Preserve, and took photographs and measurements of the petroglyph. I noted the GPS location for further study of the site. All of this was gathered and collected so I could submit the find to the State Historical Preservation office. The late prehistoric village of Clover is located very close to the site, which indicates that the site is related culturally. Clover village was part of the Fort Ancient culture, a culture both distinct and later than the Hopewell culture. Other sites similar to Clover include the Lower Shawneetown Site, the Buffalo Site, the Hardin Village Site, the Madisonville Site, the Rolfe Lee Site, Logan Site and Marmet Village Site.
