Warrenton Complicated Stamped


Defined by Miller at the Guess Site (9CO82) as part of his 1949 Allatoona Reservoir Survey. This type was never actually published, has not been used by any other person, and is not recommended for use at all. Said to be associated with Etowah Roughened and an unnamed brushed type. Have no idea why it would be named after a town over 100 miles east of the Allatoona area.

Sorting Criteria

Sand/grit tempered pottery usually in the shape of a globular bowl or jar. A large curvilinear flamboyantly carved paddle was applied and the resulting design outlines are often vague and indefinite.

Geographical Range
Presumably northwestern Georgia near Lake Allatoona.
Chronological Range
Presumable Middle Mississippian Etowah period.
