Etowah Rough


Named after the Etowah site (9Br1) 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 as roughening of the vessel surface. This occurs when the surface of a vessel is rubbed or smeared over the area had been previously stamped. We believe this is simply badly overstamped complicated stamped pottery.
