Awendaw Punctated


Eugene Waddell defined this as a young amateur in South Carolina. Chester DePratter reports that sites with this usually have only this type of pottery on them, and reports one such site near Savannah. Material is very similar to Thom's Creek Punctated and Refuge Punctated. Named after Awendaw Creek or the town of Awendaw in Charleston County, northeast of Charleston, South Carolina.
