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.
