Murray State University's archaeology lab recently acquired The West Kentucky Project collection from the University of Illinois. The collection consists of sixteen archaeological sites from western Kentucky excavated during the 1980's. All the sites in the collection are Prehistoric Mississippian. My project consists of analyzing the ceramics in each of these sites. This involves taking measurements of plate rims and handles. The goal of this project is to apply and test Dr. Kit Wesler’s ceramic dating formulas.
