hearth feature #22, N50.0-50.35/E58.3-58.6, just below the plow zone
CfDk-2, Wilson: This is an agriculturally disturbed, non-stratified, multi-component site on a level terrace about 30 m wide. Items of the Archaic, Early, Middle, and Late Woodland periods were found within the disturbed plow zone. Although Meadowood type projectile points are relatively common in the Wilson site collection, no dates on such point forms were available from Maritime sites as of 1981. Pottery with Middle Woodland decorative techniques was found in hearth area #22 accompanied by a Meadowood type projectile point base. P. Allen considers S-2269 unsatisfactory in view of the cultural associations. This sample was taken from a hearth area whose upper few cm may have been spread by the plow. A single piece of historic trash was found in the feature bag but without exact provenience.
