Abstract:
Between 1982-2002, archaeological expeditions of the Southern Coastal Plains yielded explanations for unique cultural development patterns among inhabitants such as the Iroquois and Algonkian. Such patterns, referred to by Joel Gunn as a “cultural anvil,” were especially the case during prehistoric periods, as well as global and ice ages. The author explained that this phenomenon occurred because by the Coastal Plain’s lack of natural enclosures. The phenomenon was particularly observed in ceramic artifacts.

Abstract:
This site in Moore County, sponsored by the Department of Transportation and taking place in 2002-2003, intended to determine reasons for the variation of projectile points. Discussed were the excavation and stratigraphy of the Horses Grazing Site. Factors noted by Joel Gunn and Irwin Royner of the hunters were reasons for choosing this area, the time periods in which horse grazing was at its height, the types of arrowheads manufactured, and Horse Grazing point morphology. The conclusion derived was that game hunters migrated in response to a decrease of megafauna in the area. Data illustrating point measurements is contained in Appendix A.
