McLeod Simple Stamped, Early Variety


This type is the same as Deptford Simple 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

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

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