Hi, this is my first time posting on this site.
I found these on a bank of a river in western North Carolina.
I think they are Connestee?
Just curious if anyone else has any information they can share with me to help identify them.

...I think that is cord-marked-pottery. Keep going to that area and find more.
As far as naming a people’s to it, I find that same style of fired pottery 1000-1500? miles from you. It was a way the first people made there wares, at that time...

Hi bobbymoon, your pottery looks like what I find in my creek. I live in western NC too and where the Catawba and S'atsoyaha (Yuchi) once lived. I think you will find more there of different patterns so keep looking, they are beautiful!
