The Gottschall Rock Shelter

UMRARA is pleased to present several articles and photographs on the Gottschall site, one of the finest rock art sites in Wisconsin. For thirteen years Dr. Robert Salzer and his crew have been meticulously excavating the sediment beneath walls that contain over forty pictographs. The paintings, as well as what was found "in situ" at the rock shelter, are chronicled here using photos, drawings, and text provided by Bob Salzer and Beloit College.

UMRARA is pleased to present several articles and photographs on the Gottschall site, one of the finest rock art sites in Wisconsin. For thirteen years Dr. Robert Salzer and Grace Rajnovich and crew have been meticulously excavating the sediment beneath walls that contain over forty pictographs. The paintings, as well as what was found "in situ" at the rock shelter, are chronicled here using photos, drawings, and text provided by Bob Salzer and Beloit College.

Dan Higginbottom, of the Wilford Archaeology Laboratory at the University of Minnesota and an authority on lithics in the Midwest, has written an excellent introduction to Minnesota lithics.

Kevin Callahan , a doctoral student of anthropology at the University of Minnesota, describes the application of the study of lithic and old copper age projectile points to the dating of rock art in Minnesota.

We are also reprinting two short articles by Dr. Guy Gibbon , director of the Dept. of Interdisciplinary Archaeological Studies at the University of Minnesota. The first is on the biotic provinces in this region and the second is an overview of the pre-contact people of Minnesota.

And we have five articles by Kevin Callahan, and four site reports from Deborah Morse-Kahn , M.A., regional historian, Minnesota. Callahan begins with a general introduction to the rock art found in Minnesota followed by a commentary on the various images, a report on the Nett Lake site of northwestern Minnesota, a paper on the Fort Ransom Writing Rock in North Dakota, and an account of his own experiences with atlatls. Morse-Kahn presents four Reports from Southeastern Minnesota -an Introduction, the Fisk site, the Bluffs Rockshelters, and Reno cave.

Thanks for taking the time to peruse our site, we hope that it will serve to both entertain and inform you. - Charles Bailey.
