A Regional Comparison of Complicated Stamped Pottery Designs from Coastal Georgia
Author(s): Anna Semon
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Late Mississippian ceramic assemblages from the Georgia coast contain abundant quantities of complicated stamped pottery. Motifs include concentric circles, figure nines, nested squares, and the filfot cross. Recent research tracking filfot cross design variation from assemblages on St. Catherines Island, GA was successful in identifying twelve unique variations of the filfot design. In this poster, I build on the St. Catherines research and present results from an ongoing regional study that tracks complicated stamped designs from several Late Mississippian sites on the Georgia coast. These data expand our knowledge of Late Mississippian iconography, pottery practices, networks, and social interactions.
