Booger Bottom Check Stamped


Defined by Joseph Caldwell after work at the Booger Bottom site in the Buford Reservoir (Lake Lanier) of northern Georgia. Presumably a local variety of Cartersville Check Stamped with little to recommend it. Probably should not be used again.

Geographical Range
The problem with the geographical range of this ceramic is that for the rest of northern Georgia, we use the name Cartersville Check Stamped for Middle Woodland ceramics that are check stamped and grit-tempered.
