 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

After we republished the Archaeological Atlas of Kentucky, which is volume two of  the University of Kentucky's fine Archaeological Survey of Kentucky series, we decided to follow up with Volume 3..  Of special interest are the objects found in the saltpeter rich caves and rock shelters including fabrics, wood, string and other perishable materials. 


Mammoth Americanus - Remains of these were found in the caves of Barren County

According to the forward of each of the 6 parts:  This report is the first of a series on Kentucky archaeology to be issued by the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology of the University of Kentucky.  The reports will be published from time to time as the investigations warrant and will be paged and bound to eventually form regular volumes.

Webb had originally intended for these parts to be bound into one volume but we haven't seen one of these so I don't know if it was ever actually offered in that format.  We are pleased to offer volume three in its entirety as designed ... just 75 years later.
