Officials look for remnants of Shawnee village

Posted: Updated:

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- Anthropologists are asking property owners in eastern Kentucky to help them find remnants of a lost Indian village.

The University of Kentucky's Department of Anthropology and the Kentucky Heritage Council presented information about the village and efforts to find it last week to a group of about 75 people at the Bluegrass Heritage Museum in Winchester.

They are searching for a Shawnee village that was documented in eastern Clark County in the early- to mid- 1700s.

A search three decades ago didn't turn up the village, but anthropologists are hoping that help from landowners will bring about a different result.

David Pollack, with the Kentucky Archaeological Survey, told The Winchester Sun that crews plans to search for at least the month of April.
