Named by Chester DePratter. Named for the Refuge site north of Savannah, on the Savannah River, which was excavated by Antonio Waring.
Simple stamping on sand/grit-tempered pottery. Designs are shallow, longitudinal grooves, which may have either a parallel arrangement or be in a cross-stamped pattern. Decorated tetrapods also may occur on these vessels. 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.
