A Dan Josselyn Memorial Publication

This facsimile edition of Moore's Georgia and South Carolina expeditions includes an extensive new introduction from Georgia's senior archaeologist.

This compilation of Clarence Bloomfield Moore's investigations along the rich coastal and river drainages of Georgia and South Carolina makes
available in a single volume valuable works published a century ago. By modern standards Moore's excavation techniques were crude, but his results were nothing less than spectacular. He recorded data with care, and much information can be learned from his works. In some cases his publications are the only documentation extant for sites that have since been destroyed. In one case, relic collectors had destroyed six mounds at Mason's Plantation—the largest Mississippian center in the Savannah River valley—by the time Moore visited the site in 1897.



Moore also documented prehistoric urn burials, a ritual widely practiced in eastern North America but more frequently on the Gulf Coastal Plain
of Alabama and coastal sites in Georgia and South Carolina. In the introduction, Lewis Larson discusses Moore's investigations within the framework of the current understanding of Georgia and South Carolina coastal archaeological chronology.



 

Lewis Larson is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology and Director of the Antonio J. Waring Jr., Archaeological Laboratory at the State University of West Georgia.

 


"Larson's thorough and detailed account augments Moore's data with data and interpreations by later researchers."
American Anthropologist

"Larson has worked on the Georgia coast for almost 50 years, and there is no other individual who can provide the perspective and in-depth knowledge that Dr. Larson represents. His reflections are insightful and lucid."
—Frank Schnell, The Columbus Museum
