Under contract with the Alabama Department of Transportation, Tennessee Valley Archaeological Research is currently conducting projects at several rockshelters and open air sites associated with karst features (i.e., sinkholes) in the Flint Creek drainage of Morgan County, Alabama. The rockshelters have yielded remarkably well-preserved plant and animal remains from stratified contexts, along with assemblages of stone and ceramic artifacts. One of the rockshelters has produced a radiocarbon date of 991060 BP (Cal 9650-9260 BC) from one of the deepest stratigraphic contexts at the site.
