The Gottschall Rockshelter
An Archaeological Mystery
By Robert J. Salzer and Grace Rajnovich

Hidden in a small valley in southwestern Wisconsin, the Gottschall Rockshelter is a unique example of an archaeological mystery. Here the ancestors of the present-day Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) American Indians created a remarkable series of pictographic paintings of the legend of Red Horn, a reincarnation of a primordial deity. Adapting a natural rock formation for use as a possible shrine, these skilled artists of about 900--1,000 A.D. left a visual representation that continues to testify to their deeply held spiritual beliefs. The sensational discovery of a sandstone sculpture of a human head adds to the shelter's archaeological richness. The Gottschall Rockshelter is the first full-length study of the ongoing investigation of a spectacular North American site and its ancient cultural records.

ROBERT J. SALZER received a Ph.D. degree in anthropology from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and is a professor at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin. He has directed excavations at the Gottschall Rockshelter since 1984. Salzer is the author of numerous reports on rock art, including a chapter in the "Wisconsin Archeology" issue of The Wisconsin Archeologist (1997).

GRACE RAJNOVICH holds a M.A. degree in anthropology from the University of Manitoba. She began working at the Gottschall site in 1991 and now specializes in the analysis and interpretation of its artifacts. The author of Reading Rock Art: Interpreting the Indian Rock Paintings of the Canadian Shield (1994), Rajnovich is a doctoral candidate at Michigan State University.
