Description

In this historical painting by Martin Pate, American Indians tend fires, carry game, and weave during the Late Woodland Period (AD 900–1650). Archaeologists and anthropologists believe that it was during this period that Virginia Indians settled into towns, raised crops, and made ceramics. The painting depicts typically rounded house types.

Pate's illustration was based on archaeological work conducted in George and South Carolina. Sara's Ridge is an archaeological site overlooking the Savannah River. Sara's Ridge is the name of an archaeological site near present-day Anderson, South Carolina.
