Report Number
Year of Publication

This report presents the results of an archaeological survey of the residential development known as "Tolomato Island," which is located in the coastal region of McIntosh County, Georgia. In June 2000 this firm (FCAS) conducted an archaeological survey of the first phase of the Tolomato Island development, which was then named "The Thicket Plantation of Tolomato"(Cook: 2000). The 2000 survey covered approximately the northern one half of an area that has been renamed Parcels "C" and "D." In that survey, 25 shell mounds, several areas of sheet midden, one known burial mound, and one possible burial mound were found (see Cook 2000: Figure 1). The 2001 FCAS survey covered the Tolomato Island property not surveyed in 2000. Lowland areas characterized by wetland plants, such as ferns, were not surveyed.
