Named after the Cat Cave Creek site, 9Cy28, in Clay County, Georgia, excavated by Arthur Kelly and colleagues.

Jim Knight says that this is the equivalent to Bullen's 1950 Chattahoochee Brushed. Not sure why the name was changed.

Named after the Etowah site (9Br1) by Arthur Kelly and Stu Neitzel based upon their excavations at the Chauga site (38Oc47) in Oconee County, South Carolina.

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.

Defined by Joseph Caldwell in the Allatoona Reservoir. Some researchers have used this type. This presumably is unsorted badly over stamped complicated stamped pottery. See Lamar Coarse Plain also.


This type was originally defined by Jesse Jennings and Charles Fairbanks in the Southeastern Archaeological Conference Bulletin. This type is named after Walnut Creek that joins the Ocmulgee River on the eastern boundary of Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon. The name oddly has nothing to do with roughening the surface of a vessel using the rough exterior of a walnut!
