Nottoway Archaeological Site

VLR Listing Date


NRHP Listing Date


NRHP Reference Number


Included in this site is a series of spatially overlapping Indian components on a terrace above the Nottoway River. Dating from the Paleo-Indian (9200 B.C.) through the Late Woodland (A.D. 1600) periods, the site contains artifacts, deeply stratified deposits, and hearth features that could significantly contribute to the limited research available for Native American inhabitants of the interior Coastal Plain of southern Virginia. The heavy concentration of stone spear points, knives, and hide scrapers, as well as ceramic potsherds, has provided data on chronological sequences and the cultural history of the region.
