This type was defined by Gordon Willey in 1949. Named after the Carrabelle site, 8Fr2, in Franklin County, Florida.
Punctations on grit-tempered pottery. The surface treatment occurs in the upper portion of the vessel, below the rim. The type of punctations used on this type varies greatly. These include: fingernail, rectangular and triangular stick made, hollow reed, and double-row fingernail punctations. The punctations may be underlined with an incised line. Known vessel forms include globular bowls with flared orifices, flattened-globular bowls, short-collared jars, and jars with cambered rims. Rims are direct or incurving, are slightly thickened near the margin, and thin, flat exterior folds are common. Lips are flat-round to pointed-round.
