The Ellingsworth Site (12CL127): Further Phase II Evaluation and Delineation of a Small Mississippian Circular Hamlet in Clark County, Indiana.

Saturday, September 28, 2019

The Ellingsworth Site, (12CL127) located in Clark County, Indiana has had ongoing periodic archaeological investigations since first recorded in the 1970s. The site appears to be a small Mississippian circular village or hamlet that lies very near the large Smith-Sutton Site, a palisaded Mississippian village. This presentation will discuss new radiocarbon dates recovered for site 12CL127, two partially investigated structures, and the botanical analysis of feature contents. There is also a Late Woodland component at the site that centers on a large sinkhole.

Presenter: Anne Bader has over forty years of experience in archaeology and cultural resources management. Experienced in both prehistoric and historical archaeology, she has served as principal investigator for the full range of archaeological investigations. Ms. Bader is the owner of Corn Island Archaeology LLC, located in the Falls of the Ohio River area of north-central Kentucky and southern Indiana. Ms. Bader is committed to public archaeology and education. In 2002, she formed the Falls of the Ohio Archaeological Society (FOAS), an award-winning
professional/amateur/student alliance that has attracted interested membership from three states. In 2004, she was awarded the Indiana Archaeology Award.
