Near Ararat in Patrick County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Native Americans At Laurel Hill
Thus, this prehistoric site appears to have been the site of intermittent Native American activity spanning a period of some thirteen thousand years ending with the Woodland period c. 900 C.E. There was no evidence of occupation in the Late Woodland period, c. 900 to 1600 C. E.
The Native American site extends approximately 300 feet north and south and approximately 60 feet east and west of this point. The site was defined by the recovery of prehistoric lithic tools and projectile points through controlled surface collection methods. Photographs of the recovered artifacts are shown here.
