Woodland pottery research in parts of central Alabama is limited in terms of vessel form and function. During Phase III excavations at Sandy Pasture (Site 1BB227), site stripping revealed a large feature containing 4 vessels that were able to be partially reconstructed. These were given a Woodland designation based on past studies. Using data from Sandy Pasture, this paper will look at previous Woodland ceramic research in the area and examine the form of the recovered vessels with an emphasis on their function.
