Oak Island: A Retiring Series

Record #:
This article chronicled Stanley South’s excavation at Oak Island in 1960, with comparisons made between South’s excavation and others done in Northeastern NC (notably by Haag, Phelps, Loftfield, and Hargrove). These comparisons collectively chronicled the differences in ceramics, pottery, and stone weaponry for excavations sites such as Oak Island, White Island, and Hamp’s Landings. From this, Mathis surmised that the established Oak Island nomenclature system be substituted by the newly defined Hamp’s Landing series.
