Indian Knoll (1946)

Attached below is a downloadable PDF of Willam Webb's 1946 archaeological report and analysis of the Indian Knoll site in Ohio County, Kentucky. Indigenous communities lived at Indian Knoll as early as 4050 BCE where they placed bannerstones in several of their burials. In one of these burials, Webb found a bannerstone carefully placed between an atlatl spur and handle leading him to hypothesize that bannerstones may have been used as atlatl weights (see: fig. 28; fig. 55; p. 319ff.). As Professor of the Department of Archaeology at the University of Kentucky, Webb conducted his study of Indian Knoll with a large crew of Works Project Administration Workers (WPA).
