Abstract
This prelimianry investigation of Alligator Creek has provided several significant insights concerning interior coastal nonshell midden sites. the data from Alligator Creek suggest that the site was used sporadically as an Early Woodland camp. While features were probably present in this excavation sample, their function, distribution, and number remain in doubt. Alligator Creek has produced a significant collection of primarily Refuge Series pottery and this site provides the first opportunity to examine a Refuge Phase assemblage from this portion of the South Carolina coast.
