A Late Woodland Potomac River Culture

Richard G. Slattery
Douglas R. Woodward

The product of nearly 30 years of research, The Montgomery Focus is an analysis of a series of Late Woodland habitation sites in the middle Potomac drainage. Four villages form the core of this study, and each is reported in detail. Based on data from these four sites, Slattery and Woodward define the Montgomery Focus -- an Owasco-like cultural phenomenon marked archeologically by crushed quartz- and granite-tempered, collared Shepard ceramics, clay elbow tobacco pipes, bone artifacts, medium-sized triangular projectile points, oval village plans, flexed burials, and corn agriculture. This 184-page volume contains more than six dozen illustrations and two appendices, one of which describes more than 100 discoidals (or chunkey stones) from the Winslow site. The Montgomery Focus is a must-have addition to the library of any student of late prehistoric archeology in the Middle Atlantic region.
