Abstract

The Cherry Point Prehistoric Site (9Cam187) at Kings Bay, Camden County, Georgia, was the subject of a Phase II testing and evaluation program conducted by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on behalf of the U.S. Navy in January, 1983. The research potential of this multicomponent site was evaluated on the basis of information gathered from 37 1x2 m excavation units and 4 column samples. Aboriginal occupations during the Late Archaic, Woodland, Mississippian, and historic periods were confirmed by the presence of small amounts of fiber tempered, Deptford, Savannah, and San Marcos pottery. Lithic artifacts were few and subsistence remains were uninformative. One interpretable feature was defined but it lacked associated and/or datable materials. It is concluded that this site does not offer the potential for significant scientific research. Removal from eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places is recommended.
