On the Cover

These three exquisite butterfly banners represent the pinnacle of Late Archaic period artisanship. The top specimen was found near Yanney Cave in Christian County, Kentucky more than 150 years ago. It was originally collected by Edward Payne and is one of the best documented bannerstones of its type. It measures 3 1/8” in width and is made from a stunningly beautiful piece of red and cream colored quartzite. Beneath it at the center is a remarkable specimen found by Art Gerber in the 1960s at the Crib Mound site in Spencer County, Indiana on the Ohio River. While the material appears black (and it has been given the name “Black beauty”) it is actually dark green quartzite. The barrel has interesting grooves on one face. It measures 4 ¾” in width. At the bottom is a beautiful specimen made from a golden hued quartzite from Pike County, Missouri. It measures 3 ¾” inches in width. It was found by Kevin Brimmer on June 13, 1999 and acquired from him by Maury Meadows. It later resided in the Gary Cuckler collection and then went to the current owner.
Collection of Brandon Vanderver, Evansville, Indiana
