Example text

Both Sears’s collection from the midden below Mound D (described in the following chapter) and my assemblage from Block A (described in Chapter 6) contain similar proportions of these diagnostic types. At the presumed late end of the Woodland period occupation at Kolomoki are three test unit assemblages (Units 7, 8, and 18) that contain reduced proportions of Swift Creek Complicated Stamped pottery (<25 percent) and a wide variety of Weeden Island types. In addition to Carrabelle Incised and Carrabelle Punctate, these three units also contain small amounts of Indian Pass Incised, Weeden Island Incised, and Weeden Island Red (including Weeden Island Zoned Red).

Activity areas were further characterized through a program of geophysical prospection. These investigations also helped me pinpoint a domestic area for more intensive investigation. In Chapter 6, the focus narrows to a few presumed domestic activity areas. Here, I describe the recent excavation of a household at Kolomoki. The focus on domestic activities re®ects the need to answer basic questions about the site, speci¤cally those concerning the permanence of occupation, subsistence strategy, and population growth.

The sample for this interval, which corresponds to the Kolomoki II and III phases, includes a total of 622 sites (151 in Alabama, 177 in Florida, and 294 in Georgia). 5, there are fewer sites identi¤ed for this interval along the coast. However, there is an increase in the number of reported sites along the Ocmulgee River, on the upper reaches of the Flint River, and on the Alabama River. Within the Chattahoochee River Valley, there is an increase in the number of sites at the Fall Line and to the south at the con®uence with the Flint River.
