Archaeological Investigations at 9EB92, 9EB207, 9EB208, and 9EB219, Beaverdam Group 1980
In August through October of 1980, New World Research, Inc., conducted Phase I investigations at four sites (9EB92, 9EB207, 9EB208, 9EB219) known collectively as the Beaverdam Group. Previous research at three of the sites had indicated the presence of a possible Stallings Island occupation at 9EB219, and Lamar-related Mississippian occupations at 9EB92, 9EB207, and 9EB219.
Only survey level work had been conducted at 9EB208, but Taylor and Smith (1978) had indicated that the site might be a possible quarry location. The NWR investigations confirmed the presence of a Stallings Island Late Archaic occupation at 9EB219 in addition to Early Woodland, Late Woodland, and Savannah II Mississippian occupations.
Limited Lamar phase materials were recovered from 9EB92 and -9EB207, however the focus of occupations at both sites appears to be during the Savannah II period. At 9EB208 the possibility of the site use as a quarry location could not be confirmed due to its disturbed condition, however, an early Mississippian occupation was substantiated.
