Abstract:
Fish remains recovered from prehistoric archaeological sites along the Roanoke River in Virginia and North Carolina have been found to not be native to the Roanoke, as well as a lack of species that should be found in the area. Reconsiderations of previous research will help determine if this discrepancies are unique to the prehistoric fisheries of the Roanoke.

Abstract:
In 2000, excavation teams from East Carolina University returned to this area after a twenty plus year absence. Examined were the area’s early and middle Holocene chronology, typology, and geoarchaeology of the middle to late Archaic periods. Data was gathered through sedimentology, site formations, and mapping and shovel testing of the sand ridge. Recovered were flakes and sherds of ceramics and stone tools. Complementing the qualitative data were figures detailing sherd and site images. Tables contained data related to ceramic types and sample sizes for tool flakes and sherds.

Abstract:
This project was undertaken to deepen the understanding of Deep Creek ceramics from the early Woodland period, established by archaeological excavations at the Northern Coastal Plain’s Parker and Barber Creeks by David Phelps (1975, 1977, 1983). Methodology employed during this site work involved surface treatment and temper analyses of sherds. A conclusion drawn from analyses was a consistency between wares recovered and ceramic artifacts dating from this period. Data was represented in figures featuring images of the sherds from these sites and tables depicting temper size, abundance, and inclusions.

Abstract:
Between 2001-2007, pottery from the early middle, and late Qualla periods was excavated from Tennessee Valley’s Coweeta Creek in Southwestern NC. Credited by the author as one of the first analytical comparisons of these ceramic styles, this article contains an analysis of cultural artifacts, Cherokee settlements, and lifeways of prehistoric and historic Cherokee groups. Also discussed were the Qualla ceramic series, sherd samples, and temporal differences between sherds. Images of and quantitative data for these sherds can be found in the figures and tables.

Abstract:
Discussed were artifacts, initially identified as Morrow Mountain Projectile Points, discovered in a site in Mount Olive, NC. To build his case, the author, proposing that the three butchering tools were actually knives, used this evidence: crafting method; shape, size, weight, and width of the blade; and perceived functions. Illustrations related to these factors were figures featuring images of knives recovered from other archaeological excavations.
