Abstract:
As an introduction to this periodical series of articles, Herbert discussed William Haag, an archaeologist who completed an excavation series of coastal sites between 1954-1955. His endeavor paved the road for several future archaeological related activities in Coastal NC. Highlighted was his descriptions of testing and surveying sites along the northern coast of North Carolina. His work laid a foundation for the prehistoric ceramic sequence still in use at the time of this journal’s publication. Also noted among his contributions to the field was a symposium organized for the fifty fifth annual Southern Archaeological Conference. This Conference yielded six of the articles published in this volume.

Abstract:
The author deliberated the proper taxonomic sequence of ceramic series such as Oak Island, White Oak, Cape Creek, Thom’s Creek, Cape Fear, Hanover, and Papanow. Factors considered in the determination of actual dates that these ceramic series appeared included temper and surface. Radiocarbon and thermoluminescence dating methods determined which Woodland period these ceramic series appeared. Several figures identified the NC coastal counties containing these sites or featured images of ceramic sherds.
