This type was named by Joseph Caldwell for material from the Allatoona Reservoir. Named after old Galt's Ferry over the Etowah River in Cherokee County.
Complicated stamped pottery found with Galt Check Stamped. The paste of the Galt series is gray to black in color, as opposed to the tan to brown paste of other check stamped pottery. Designs and executions of the Galt period are sloppy.
