Florence Street (11-S-758) Site: v.2 : Early Woodland and Mississippian Occupations
This was a multicomponent site that included a 13th century Mississippian charnel house and cemetery and a catastrophically-buried Early Woodland component. The total excavation of this cemetery provided additional information on 13th century Mississippian burial practices, health, and social organization. The Early Woodland occupation contained extensive midden deposits as well as hearths and pits. These cultural features, along with the grog-tempered ceramics and contracting stem points, formed the basis for the definition of the Florence phase (300-500 B.C.). This phase has its closest connections to contemporaneous cultures in the Mid-south.
