The Accokeek Creek Site: A Middle Atlantic Seaboard Culture SequenceRobert L. Stephenson, Alice L. L. Ferguson and Henry G. Ferguson 1963
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
The Accokeek Creek site, in Prince George's County, Maryland, sits at the spot where the Piscataway Creek enters the Potomac, across the river from Mt. Vernon. The owner of the property, Alice Ferguson, excavated the site and wrote notes on her work, which became the basis for this volume. The site, which was also known as Moyaone, contained evidence for occupation from the Archaic to the historic period. Excavation revealed remains of a village, burials, and many classes of artifacts, including pottery, pipes, chipped stone tools, and items made from shell, antlers, and bone.
