Complicated stamping is a rare method of surface treatment within the Eno River drainage and occurs elsewhere (e.g., the Mitchum [31Ch452], early Upper Saratown [31Sk1], and Upper Saratown [31Sk1a] sites) as a minority treatment within Historic period contexts (Davis 1987; Wilson 1983). Whether these sherds are of a single type or represent two or more different types is uncertain; however, their association with the Historic period occupation at the Fredricks site appears likely.
