Prairie Cord Marked


Named by John Goggin from north-central Florida, and refined by Jerald Milanich and John Worth. Presumably related to West Florida Cord Marked, the Ocmulgee Cord Marked types of Frankie Snow, and even Wilmington Heavy Cord Marked on the Georgia Coast. This broad similarity may reflect a movement of people from south-central Georgia to north-central Florida according to Milanich. This is a part of what John Worth (n.d.) calls the Suwannee Valley Series.
