Stephen Davis, and Mark Plane, archaeologists from the University of North Carolina, discovered Catawba pottery from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in New Town, South Carolina.

Also noted was this research’s significance and implications for the Colonoware debate.

Mark Plane’s study examined the Catawba’s resilience during their contact with English settlers throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In addition to adopting many cultural practices, this Native American group was able to keep its cultural identity intact. What the author focuses on, though, are the English cultural practices the Catawba adopted, reflected in the changes in their ceramics and eating habits. Underscored was the role that strategic alliances with the British through trade played in these social and cultural adoptions.
