Indian Pottery in Carolina

Record #:
Evidence for Native Americans varied greatly depending on the region. Along the coast, shell middens were found and or around village or lodge sites. Some of these sites were seasonal often used for fishing during summer months. In the mountains, cave and rock shelters were sought out for protection. Pottery was typically found in fragments or sherds, but occasionally an entire vessel was discovered. In the 1940s, the Archaeological Society of North Carolina was attempting to find and preserve any remaining Native American pottery.
