Refuge Dentate Stamped


Named for the Refuge site north of Savannah, on the Savannah River, which was excavated by Antonio Waring.

Sorting Criteria

Dentate stamping on sand/grit-tempered pottery. Impressions are fine and clear. Single or multiple lines of stamping occur without any apparent patterning. Sometimes occurs in association with simple stamping or punctation. Rims are straight or are occasionally slightly flared. Lips may be squared or rounded. They are often tilted outward, giving a beveling effect to the outer edge. Vessel forms are conoidal jars or hemispherical bowls. Bases are conoidal or rounded, or squared if tetrapodal supports are present.
