Investigating Late Mississippian Incised Pottery on St. Catherines Island, GA
Author(s): Anna Semon
Recent excavations at Fallen Tree (9Li8), St. Catherines Island, GA have recovered thousands of ceramics. Although the majority of the decorated sherds are complicated stamped, more than 500 sherds are incised, which is more than any St. Catherines Island Mississippian site. In this paper, I characterize Late Mississippian mortuary and village incised pottery on St. Catherines based on temper, rim attributes, designs, and incising techniques. In addition, I examine vessel forms and sizes to discuss differences between assemblages. Finally, I explore the various incised pottery designs and compare with similar designs on other Late Mississippian artifacts.
