Conjurer’s Field Archeological Site

VLR Listing Date


NRHP Listing Date


NRHP Reference Number


Situated on the west bank of the Appomattox River within the city limits of Colonial Heights, on what was formerly a plantation known as Conjurer’s Neck, this site contains deposits relating to an Indian village of the Middle and Late Woodland periods (500 B.C.—A.D. 1600). Excavations conducted in 1966 and 1967 revealed well-preserved cultural features such as refuse-filled pits and human burials. The diverse mixture of Indian ceramic fragments at the Conjurer’s Field Archeological Site could provide valuable data for studies on cultural interactions between peoples living in the Piedmont, on the coastal plain, and along the fall line.
