Unearthing the Past: The Archaeology of the Falls of the Ohio River Region
By Don Janzen • Paperback • 8.5 x 11 • 128 pages
Archaeologist Don Janzen's new book, Unearthing the Past: The Archaeology of the Falls of the Ohio River Region, takes readers on a 10,000-year journey to explore prehistoric Native American life in the Falls of the Ohio River region. The fascinating story, which begins with bands of hunters and gatherers foraging for food and ends with settled village life based on horticulture, is told through a detailed discussion of eight archaeological sites in the area, and is richly illustrated with a variety of images of artifacts that were left behind. Janzen's captivating and compelling revelations about what lies beneath the streets and subdivisions of this now-bustling 21st century metropolitan area will be enjoyed by archaeologists and general readers alike.
"In my 14 years as an Interpretive Naturalist at the Falls of the Ohio State Park, I have met a great number of interesting people, but my favorite is Don Janzen. Each visit was a unique learning experience for me, for I wanted to learn as much as possible about the archaeology of the Falls of the Ohio region and he is one of the foremost authorities on the subject. ... Don always shares his immense knowledge in a way that is easy to understand and relate to. This long-awaited book brings insights and answers to those of us who have had only bits and pieces of local prehistory. This narrative ties them all together!" —Bett Etenohan, Interpretive Naturalist, Falls of the Ohio State Park, Clarksville, IN
