Further Phase II Evaluation and Delineation of a Small Mississippian Circular Hamlet in Clark County, Indiana.
The Ellingsworth Site, (12CL127) located in Clark County, Indiana has had ongoing periodic archaeological investigations since first recorded in the 1970s. The site appears to be a small Mississippian circular village or ham:let that lies very near the large Smith-Sutton Site, a palisaded Mississippian village. This presentation will discuss new radiocarbon dates recovered for site 12CL127, two partially investigated structures, and the botanical analysis of feature contents. There is also a Late Woodland component at the site that-centers on a large sinkhole.
This event is a part of Indiana Archaeology Month. During September, organizations around the state celebrate archaeology by hosting events where individuals can learn more about the archaeology field and the past.
