The ancient Adena Culture of Kentucky and surrounding states is renowned for its massive burial mounds and exquisite art works. But the lives of Adena people are shrouded in mystery because only three habitation sites have been found. Where did they live? Apparently, modern farming has destroyed most of their archaeological traces. In this video, Dr. Berle Clay examines the search for rare Adena settlements, which could tell archaeologists much abut the lifeways of American Indians who lived in Kentucky over 2000 years ago.

This video documents how two sciences, archaeology and paleoecology, came together in a research project that confirmed archaeologists' ideas about the changing land use patterns of the First Americans along the western edge of the Appalachian Mountains. Archaeologist Cecil Ison takes viewers to a spectacular site on the Daniel Boone National Forest where soil core studies show how American Indians used fire to manage the environment for over 3,000 years. This understanding of ancient practices will help guide forest management for the future.

Discovered in the 1980s, the dozens of prehistoric mud glyphs (drawings) deep inside Crump’s Cave have been subject to vandalism, despite the best efforts of the private property owner. This video, the third in the Kentucky Archaeology series, documents these precious and fragile art works and the labor of dedicated volunteers to construct a metal gate to protect them. Archaeologists Valerie Haskins and Dan Davis lead viewers on an unforgettable journey to see these rare legacies from Kentucky’s original inhabitants.

American history and archaeology converge in this film, which examines the economic, scientific and cultural impacts of a massive work relief program conducted across Kentucky during the Great Depression. The WPA archaeology program was much more than the jobs it created: it laid the foundation for today's understanding of Kentucky's diverse prehistoric American Indian cultures. Some of America's best and brightest young archaeologists supervised the WPA's projects, which gave badly needed employment to an army of workers.
