Ceramic Types and Typology in Northeastern North Carolina: The View from the Davenport Site (31BR39)

Record #:
John Byrd’s examination of ceramic assemblage from the Davenport site, located in Bertie County along the Pamlico River, proposed possible similarities between those ceramics and three others gathered in Northeastern NC. Temporal patterns in paste temper and surface were used to determine similarities. From his assessment of the Davenport data, which uncovered a ceramic series deposited earlier than expected, Byrd proposed that the cultural-historical framework standard for these ceramic series needed to be refined.
