Summary:
This study presents a comprehensive ceramic typology for the Middle Woodland period (300 B.C.-A.D. 800) on Hatteras Island, North Carolina. It provides graphic illustrations of relative frequencies for ceramic series and types for five sites on Hatteras Island and two sites on Colington Island to the north. These data are then synthesized with comparative data from Roanoke Island and eight sites along the adjacent mainland coastal plain. They show that a significant southern influence was in place on the barrier islands and coastal mainland during the Middle Woodland period. The border between the northern and southern culture regions during the Middle Woodland can be drawn at the Tar-Pamlico drainage rather than at the Neuse River to the south.
