Prehistoric Pottery Taxonomy and Sequence in the Southern Coast of North Carolina

Record #:
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.
