A Decade of Archaeology at Fort Knox: 2001 - 2011

By R. Criss Helmkamp, James C. Pritchard, Christy W. Pritchard, and E. Nicole Mills

2012 29th Annual Kentucky Heritage Council Archaeology Conference

This collaborative paper presents a synopsis of the numerous archaeological studies completed at Fort Knox from 2001 to 2011.  As the primary public land holder in the Salt River Management Area and as the host of one of the most intensively funded archaeology programs in the Commonwealth, the presenters discuss the many ways in which Fort Knox contributes to our understanding of this archaeological region.  A review of the major studies conducted, insights gained, and updates to our understanding of the archaeology of the reservation since the University of Kentucky's seminal 1979-1980 work are provided.
