Pottery like these two refitted sherds was not a typical find at the Curry Site in Greenwood County. The Curry site was a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site occupied periodically during the Archaic, Early Ceramic and Middle Ceramic Periods. These sherds were reconstructed prior to it's donation in 1984. They came from a polychrome (multiple colors) jar and was likely traded into the site from the southwest. The jar could have been painted either before or after firing, though the colors, when it was new, would have been more vibrant if painting followed firing.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
