McLeod Check Stamped


This type is the same as Deptford Check Stamped. Named by Steve Wimberly after the McLeod Estate site in Clarke County, Alabama. This type was included on the Georgia list by Caldwell in 1969 for unknown reasons.

Sorting Criteria

Check stamping on sand-tempered pottery. Known vessel forms include globular to flattened-globular jar and bowl forms. Rims are direct on bowl forms, straight and vertical, and straight and slightly flaring on jars. Most vessels have small rim folds, however, the open bowl vessel form often does not exhibit this trait.

Geographical Range
The Mobile Bay area and presumably southern Alabama. We doubt that this extends into southwestern Georgia, use the name Deptford Check Stamped in Georgia instead.
Chronological Range
Middle Woodland.
