Refining the Deep Creek Definition: An Examination of Deep Creek Ceramics from the Parker and Barber Creek Sites

Record #:
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.
