CLARKSVILLE

Falls archeology society to meet

Falls of the Ohio Archaeological Society will host its annual meeting at 2 p.m. Jan. 11 at the Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center, 201 W. Riverside Drive, Clarksville.

General public invited. $5 admission, members free.

The speaker will be Nicholas Laracuente of the Kentucky Heritage Council, presenting “Bourbon Archaeology: Unearthing the forgotten stories from Kentucky’s Distilling Industry.”

Many histories that are being interpreted through bourbon tourism tend to focus on bourbon legends, general industry history and the prominent figures associated with the distilleries that are in operation, while the history of distillery workers and the hundreds of distilleries that did not flourish, have largely been forgotten.

An archaeological examination of Kentucky’s distilleries highlights the forces that brought a landscape of widespread uncontrolled production under the purview of a few. Yet, excavating and interpreting distillery sites can be as complicated as the industry’s history.
