Introducing the Copelin Valley Clovis Site: Kentucky’s Best Kept Paleo Secret

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Since 2014 I have been recording Clovis assemblages in private collections from the Copelin Valley in Hart County, Kentucky including a plethora of material from the Copelin Valley site (15HT108). Collections from this site and neighboring sites indicate that the Copelin Valley was extensively utilized by Clovis groups. The assemblages include everyday toolkits (projectile points, scrapers, blades, cores, etc) as well as intensive biface production predominately from locally available Sonora chert. Data collected thus far is discussed as well as brief regional comparisons and tentative interpretations
