Between 2001-2007, pottery from the early middle, and late Qualla periods was excavated from Tennessee Valley’s Coweeta Creek in Southwestern NC. Credited by the author as one of the first analytical comparisons of these ceramic styles, this article contains an analysis of cultural artifacts, Cherokee settlements, and lifeways of prehistoric and historic Cherokee groups. Also discussed were the Qualla ceramic series, sherd samples, and temporal differences between sherds. Images of and quantitative data for these sherds can be found in the figures and tables.

This article is a lead in for “The Last of the Iroquois Potters,” M.R. Harrington’s 1909 study of traditional Cherokee ceramics produced during the Qualla periods in what is now Cherokee, NC. Riggs and Rodning’s article focused on other archaeologists from Harrington’s time and characteristic features of pottery produced particularly during the Qualla periods. Also noted were other discoveries of Iroquois pottery in Southeast regions such as Georgia and the continuation of this pottery’s production into the twenty first century.
