Lawson Field Incised


Gordon Willey excavated at the Lawson Field site located on Fort Benning near Columbus, Georgia, in 1939. It is uncertain if this is a useful type. A better type name for this sort of pottery might be Ocmulgee Fields Incised. Lawson Field is the name for the airport landing strip at Fort Benning.
