The Sewee shell ring, built during the Late Archaic Period, is located on the lower coastal plain of South Carolina. The structural features that appear to have controlled freshwater at the Sewee shell ring are similar to water control dams and weirs identified at South American archaeological sites.
Natural water gathering in two newly discovered Carolina bays, designated as Oak Bay and Pine Bay was studied. These bays and the Sewee shell ring, a planned water gathering system built in the Archaic Period, provided a supply of freshwater. This study describes how hunter-gatherers utilized natural landscape features at these coastal archaeological sites.
The summer flounder, southern flounder, and gulf flounder all occur in southeastern estuaries of the United States. This study documented the tidally influenced movement of flounders in the upper intertidal zone of DeVeaux Bank, South Carolina. Flounders form sand beds which can be used to characterize the utilization of the intertidal zone by flounders.
