Ceramic Types and Cordage Analysis for the Johnston and Other Sites

By Susan Lukowski, Leland Geletka, Kathryn Gompers, and Audrey Lilley

Recent investigations by archaeological field schools from Indiana University of Pennsylvania have recovered samples of ceramics from the Johnston site on the southern side of the county along the Conemaugh River and the Carl Fleming site along Crooked Creek in the northern part of the county. While the Johnston site is part of the well known Monongahela culture of southwestern Pennsylvania, the Carl Fleming site is from an area with a less well defined cultural tradition. A preliminary analysis of the ceramics has defined differences and similarities in the two assemblages.
