A Comparison of Late Mississippian Complicated Stamped Designs from the Georgia Coast
Author(s): Anna Semon
Complicated stamped pottery dominates Late Mississippian (AD 1300-1580) ceramic assemblages on the Georgia coast. The most prolific design is the filfot cross, which is symmetrical and comprised of four basic elements. Although the overall filfot design does not change, the basic elements can differ to create unique combinations that can be used to track filfot variation and paddles. In this poster, I present the methods and results of a complicated- stamped pottery study, which tracked filfot cross design variations from several Late Mississippian sites on the Georgia coast. These data expand our knowledge of Late Mississippian artwork, woodcarving technology, pottery practices, and coastal social interactions.
