The Late Archaic component of this Ridge and Valley site included structural features containing radiocarbon data. A pit feature from the Middle/Late Woodland component also yielded radiocarbon samples, along with Radford-like ceramics and subsistence remains. Recovery of nearly 21,000 artifacts allowed detailed analysis of spatial organization within the site. Results of geomorphology, lithic microwear, and ethnobotanical studies are also incorporated with the report.
