Galt Roughened


This was named by Joseph Caldwell based upon his excavation in the Allatoona Reservoir. This rough plain pottery was a part of the historic Cherokee component from northwestern Georgia.

Sorting Criteria

Presumably a roughened surface from poorly stamped complicated stamped pottery. The Galt series is grit-tempered and the paste is grey to black in color, often with a bluish cast.
