Deep Cave Rock Art|
in the Upper Mississippi Valley
By Robert F. Boszhardt
"On our hands and knees we ventured through a crawl-way into the pitch-black second room, and there saw the deer hunters. Here, in the cool dark stillness, we stared at a panel of black lines. At first these appeared as a jumble of shapes, but gradually our eyes and minds adjusted and we could make out bow hunters, antlerless and pregnant deer, and stylized birds. "
"Never before had a deep cave site been found with archaeology in this region, let alone rock art in a dark zone setting. That revelation immediately added an entirely new dimension to Driftless Area archaeology. "
The beautiful river valleys and bluffs of Southwestern Wisconsin have been home to various cultures for millenia, some of whom have left their marks in the caves and rockshelters that line this vast unglaciated drainage.
Deep Cave Rock Art in the Upper Mississippi Valley is the story of the discovery, protection, and recording of two of these ancient rock art sites which form the largest concentration of petroglyphs and pictographs in the region. Boszhardt's work is an important chapter in the state's continuing effort to promote and protect the collective cultural history of all of her peoples.
This fully-illustrated book makes available to both the professional archaeologist and the general public all of the current research being done in these caves, treating the reader to a compelling mystery whose solution involves archaeology as well as Native American traditional knowledge.
