Abstract:

The Hurricane Branch Site may be characterized as a multi-component site which has been sporadically visited by Archaic cultural groups, but most intensively occupied in the Middle Woodland and briefly in the late prehistoric period. At this site, the Archaic affiliations tend to be dominated by southerly influences. Woodland affiliations continue to be southerly in nature with strong influences from the McFarlandOwl Hollow complexes of the Upper Duck River in southern Tennessee and the Wabash River Valley of Illinois. Hopewellian influences are so sparse as to be virtually negligible as are the late prehistoric developments.
