CRA Corporate Logo – The Gaitskill Tablet

Logo_gaitskill

From William S. Webb (1940) The Wright Mounds, Sites 6 and 7, Montgomery County, Kentucky. Figure 66, page 122. Reports in Anthropology, Volume V, Number 1. Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, University of Kentucky, Lexington.

The CRA corporate logo is adapted from a prehistoric design found on a stone tablet recovered from the Gaitskill Mound (circa 1900) in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. William S. Webb and W.D. Funkhouser first described the tablet in 1932. Tablets such as these are associated with the Adena cultural complex, located along the Ohio River Valley during the early Middle Woodland time period (ca. 500 B.C. – A.D. 200).
