7:45 PRELIMINARY PERSPECTIVES ON THE MIDDLE WOODLAND GEORGE SMITH SITE: APPLYING SURFACE SURVEY APPLICATIONS **, Jennifer Weber (1), Terry Powis (2) and Kong Cheong (3), (1) Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA 30302, (2) Kennesaw State University, Kennesaw, GA 30144 and (3) Brockington and Associates, Inc., Norcross, GA 30071. The George Smith Site is located in Bartow County, Georgia and dates to the Middle Woodland Period (300 BC- AD 200). The Middle Woodland is perceived as a time of seasonal movement and occupational specialization for exploiting a specific resource niche. Over the past few decades, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have proven to be valuable tools to map and record spatial data, particularly settlement patterns and artifact density analysis. The spatial and distributional analyses of this data lead to a better understanding of various aspects of prehistoric occupational periods. This paper focuses on the implementation of GIS to survey and document the George Smith site. 8:00 POTTERY ANALYSIS OF BURNT VILLAGE SITE (9TP9) **, Vanessa N. Hanvey *, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602. Burnt Village (9TP9) or Okfuskenena was a historic Native American Creek town located three miles west of LaGrange, Georgia. On September 21, 1793, white colonists burned the town in an attempt to force the inhabitants west. Harold Huscher of the University of Georgia excavated the site during the field seasons of 1966-69. No final report was published. Ongoing analyses of the recovered artifact collections are increasing our knowledge of this little know Creek occupation. In this paper I will report on recent findings of Burnt Village, focusing on pottery chronology and spatial distribution for the site. The Laboratory of Archaeology at the University of Georgia provided space and supplies for the completion of this research.
