Alan Mack Site, Orangeburg County (Address Restricted)

Site Soil Profile

The Alan Mack Site is significant because it demonstrates a long record of successive prehistoric occupations that exist in an intact stratified context. The stratified deposits can add significantly to our understanding of cultural chronologies that exist in the Middle Coastal Plain of South Carolina. Further significance is derived from the changes in raw material utilization through time, which can enhance our knowledge of prehistoric cultural systems. Significance is also found in a unique site formation process that can provide a key to understanding the formation of other archeological sites in the Coastal Plain. Archeological investigations have demonstrated that the cultural periods represented are Early, Middle, and Late Archaic, Early, Middle, and Late Woodland, and Mississippian. These cultural periods exist in an undisturbed context. Listed in the National Register January 6, 1986.
