Institution

Eastern Kentucky University

Abstract

This poster depicts the results of archaeological field studies conducted at the Broaddus Site. This material was excavated during the 1999 and 2002 Eastern Kentucky University archaeological field schools in cooperation with the Blue Grass Army Depot in Madison County. Based on our fieldwork, we now know that this Middle Fort Ancient site radiocarbon dates to the early AD 1200s. Also based on our fieldwork, we established that the Broaddus Site consists of a midden ring encircling a cleared plaza and a central burial mound. In addition to a general overview of the site, this poster discusses the ceramic and faunal remains excavated from the Broaddus Site. Using previous publications, the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, and the Surfer mapping program, we were able to reconstruct various life ways of the people who inhabited the Broaddus Site.
