High Point Plantation (9MC66), located on the north end of Sapelo Island (Figure 1), has a complex and intriguing history. This site also possesses a certain element of archaeological ambiguity concerning its nature, and even its location. A primary purpose of the survey and testing program carried out at High Point by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga during the summer of 2007 was to substantially reduce, if not eliminate, many of these uncertainties. As summarized below, this goal has largely been achieved. Additionally, it has simultaneously been possible to provide the project sponsor—the Georgia Department of Natural Resources—with a cultural resource management document that outlines (1) the content and spatial extent of the archaeo-logical record at 9MC66, (2) the significance of those remains, and (3) suggestions for future research.
