The Rice Farm site, located in Dawson County, Georgia was a Native American site occupied during the Middle and Late Woodland periods (approximately 300 BCE to 600 CE). Recent excavations at the site have identified pits and posts containing numerous artifacts and ecofacts left behind by the ancient inhabitants. These material remains attest to the economic, social, and ritual behaviors of the ancient occupants. This poster presents the ongoing study of the material culture, employing cutting-edge archaeological science to interpret the material remains of the past. Furthermore, this poster demonstrates the collaborative nature of archaeology as a “team sport” bringing specialists together to best understand past populations.
