Joffre Lanning Coe

This study concerns the aboriginal occupation of North Carolina. In 1934, the prehistory of the Piedmont lay in the ground, and the archaeology of the Southeastern U.S. was in its infancy. Since that time, remarkable progress has been made in archaeological research, and the basic patterns of cultural development for the ceramic communities are now well known.
