Sheldon 1982:31). 2). Structure 4, as this building was named by Larson, was clearly constructed by setting 89 small-diameter uprights into wall trenches. 5 cm apart. The wall trenches averaged about 25 cm in width. The floor of the structure was within a shallow basin excavated to approximately 40 cm below the general ground surface. A round, puddled clay hearth was documented at the center of the floor. 9 m (22 x 16 ft). Other than the use of clay daub in its construction, Larson’s notes did not indicate any additional information as to the above-ground details.

Project Design This project was carried out at the Etowah site near Cartersville, Georgia, on a small plot adjacent to the museum and visitor center.
