Abstract:
Archaeological excavations are currently being carried out in a mountain cornfield located near the east fork of the Tuckasegee River in Jackson County. The cornfield is thought to be the site of a Cherokee Village that once may have contained over 300 houses and that was destroyed in a raid in 1780 by John Sevier. Pottery, stone tools and weapons are among the artifacts that have been recovered. Additionally, several home sites have been excavated, revealing circular fireplaces in excellent condition, with ashes still intact.
