Deptford Plain


Original name was Franklin Plain (named after Franklin County, Florida) by Gordon Willey for Florida. Waring and Caldwell never defined the plain pottery from the Deptford site in the late 1930s. This was defined later by implication for Middle Woodland plain pottery. The term Cartersville is used for similar plain pottery in northern Georgia.
