Abstract
Initial investigations, consisting of a reconnaissance level study, were conducted in 1994 (Adams and Trinkley 1994:31). Site 38CH2242 was not, however, identified until the subsequent intensive survey in 2008. Encountered during routine shovel testing, this testing was expanded eventually including 65 tests at 50-foot intervals. Twenty-two of these tests (34%) were positive, producing 113 specimens, 69 of which were colono sherds (61%). The testing also recovered 21 prehistoric sherds, but all of them were small (under 1-inch in diameter). The pat-tern analysis suggested the site was occupied by enslaved African Americans. Too few datable ceramics were re-covered to allow for reliable use of mean ceramic dating, al-though the site was thought to be eighteenth century based on the abundance of colono pottery (Trinkley et al. 2008:150-152).
