Geophysical techniques were used to collect data on a poorly understood Adena earthwork. The Winchester Farm Earthwork, part of the well-known Elkhorn Creek Complex in central Kentucky, is barely discernible today. Long recognized as a circular embankment, the results of our geophysical survey indicate that the internal area defined by a now-filled ditch is roughly square. Winchester Farm is compared to other small earthworks in the Middle Ohio Valley known from two centuries of archaeological research.
