Abstract: Using data from surveys and excavations along the Savannah River watershed, Anderson and Hanson propose a model of Early Archaic settlement that is based on band-macroband interaction and mobility and on a mixed collector-forager strategy. They review the data from Rucker's Bottom and the George S. Lewis sites in more detail. These two sites are compared with five other sites on the south Atlantic slope of Goergia and South Carolina.
