  • First Fragments 🏺

    Found these two fragments at my friend's burn site. There are bits of ground up quartz mixed in. Any clue to their culture or age? I'm excited because it's just more confirmation that there was a village there some time back. 😁

      Unfortunately the tractor has spread the topsoil all around and there's no telling where all the pieces are. 😬

    I found some pottery this summer. Small pieces like you are showing. I took my pieces to someone (it was 2 men looking at it) and they verified it was pottery. I now have maybe 5 pieces. You’re in a different area of SC but I was told late Archaic or Woodland for my pieces. I was also told it was stamped but I don’t see it, lol. My finds look like plain pottery to me, they definitely saw something I don’t see at all. Without bigger pieces of a design, I don’t know how you determine β€œwho” made it. I did read an article today that Native American pottery was first made in South Carolina in the coastal area and spread throughout the country from there. I’ll see if I can send you the link.

      Great Info Jo and congrats to both of you on the finds. Clemson Island is the oldest known for Pa., so I believe. This is also plant and sand tempered. About 1000 BC. Also they have traced many tribes migrations by their styles here in Pa. A good friend has created a Pottery Repository at the State Museum. Any pottery I find goes to that repository. K
      Knowledge is about how and where to find more Knowledge. Snyder County Pa.
