This volume is a detailed account of investigations carried out in Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky, since 1969, aimed at describing and explaining the aboriginal use of these caves. Among other things, the book includes reports on:
- All that is now known about the aboriginal miners themselves and their activities in several caves within Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky and in Wyandotte Cave in Southern Indiana;
- Prehistoric materials (including charred and broken human bones) recovered from excavations in the entrance chamber of Salts Cave;
- Identification and analysis of botanical material from the caves, emphasising its significance for our understanding of early horticulture in eastern North America.
This volume, with its abundance of anthropological, archaeological, and botanical detail, will appeal not only to New World archeologists and prehistorians, but also to all those interested in caves and cave exploration, ancient or modern.
