King George Incised


Named by Joseph Caldwell in his master's thesis after WPA excavations at Fort King George at Darien in McIntosh County near the mouth of the Altamaha River. Joseph Caldwell and his wife, Sheila Kelly Caldwell, eventually renamed this type as Altamaha Incised presumably because this was an Indian pottery that definitely preceded the construction of the Fort. This term should probably not be used.
