In May 1982 a potentially significant prehistoric archaeological site was identified on the northern end of Hilton Head Island by developer John Crago and his foreman, Jerre Wekhorst. This site, situated on the north edge of the Coggin and Fish Haul Creek marsh, was uncovered during the early stages of road construction in the Fish Haul subdivision (Baygall area of Hilton Head Island). Wekhorst collected abundant pottery as the work continued in the subdivision and took a small sample to the Charleston Museum, where we examined it for the first time in early June. This collection was notable not only for the mix of pottery (both Early and Middle Woodland period sherds were present), but also for the large size of the Early Woodland sherds.
