This report summarizes archaeological evaluations of two sites near the Pamunkey River in King William County, Virginia. Site 44KW71 is a prehistoric lithic scatter occupied during the Late Archaic and Middle Woodland periods. Site 44KW73 is a multicomponent site with occupations dating from the Late Archaic, Middle Woodland, Late Woodland/Protohistoric, and the early to mid-19th century. The Late Woodland/Protohistoric component may represent an ephemeral camp indirectly associated with nearby Uttamussak, an important ceremonial site of the Powhatan Confederacy. The 19th-century component includes two refuse-filled pits that served as interior root cellars for slave cabins.
