The Native American Burial Site Found In Kentucky Is A Historical Wonder
We often talk about Kentucky’s deep and rich history, but those discussions are generally limited to the last 200-300 years. But the truth of the matter is, Kentucky’s history predates its founding as the Bluegrass State. Like the rest of the country, Kentucky was home to Native American tribes many, many centuries ago. In Southwest Kentucky, a Native American village once occupied the site of Wickliffe Mounds from roughly 1100 to 1350 A.D. This Native American site is a fascinating place in Kentucky that reveals much about our state’s earliest residents.
