Etowah Red


Named after the Etowah site or series by Arthur Kelly and Stu Neitzel based upon their excavations at the Chauga site (38Oc47) in Oconee County, South Carolina.

Sorting Criteria

Kelly and Neitzel describe this type as a red painted ware that occurs in attenuated degrees along with other Etowah elements. Presumably the same as Etowah Red Filmed. We recommend use of that term instead.

Geographical Range
Not listed in type description.
Chronological Range
Presumably Middle Mississippian.
