Screening and panel discussion for a new one-hour documentary about the history and culture of a farming community in the Creelsboro valley along the Cumberland River in south-central Kentucky. Interviews from scholars and residents bring the valley’s rich cultural heritage to life, from the first American Indians to occupy the area, through early settlement by Euro-American pioneers, to the golden age of steamboats, and the changes brought by the construction of Wolf Creek Dam. This video is the seventh episode in "The Kentucky Archaeology & Heritage Series," which is produced by the Kentucky Archaeological Survey, a program within the Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology at Western Kentucky University.
