Anderson and Donald L. Sainz, neighborhood amateurs, and the gathering from this and different Staten Island websites used to be studied through the author in February 1962 during the courtesy of Mr. Anderson (this page). This research pointed to a vertical distribution of the fabrics at previous position within which a small yet normal Snook Kill assemblage of issues and scrapers—of quartzite, rhyolite, argillite, jasper and flint—occurred within the lowest few inches of a homogeneous tan-colored sand, forty-two inches deep. From a touch greater point got here Poplar Island issues with a small intermixture of naked Island issues, and an unfinished bipennate atlatl weight. Above this relatively obscure area have been came upon commonly naked Island issues of argillite, it appears with a couple of slim stemmed and weakly corner-notched issues, of an identical fabric, like these present in the same organization within the Kent-Hally web site on naked Island within the reduce Susquehanna River (Kinsey, 1959, Plate five, Figures 7–11). safer information at the relative place within the developmental sequences of the Northeast of complexes ruled via issues which, upon genuine inspection by way of the author, endure unmistakable typological affinities with the Snook Kill sort, come from japanese Massachusetts. for instance, on the Foster’s Cove website at the Shawsheen River within the northeastern a part of the country, Bullen came across such issues (called “corner-removed”), made from felsite and slate, within the decrease area of the positioning, in organization with the semilunar knife and stone gouge. From a little greater within the similar, yellow-brown sand stratum got here small stemmed and small triangular issues of quartz. The superincumbent loam stratum produced all through a predominance of huge triangular issues, including potsherds, of coarsely tempered grit on the decrease degrees, vegetable-tempered and fine-grit-tempered above (Bullen, 1949, pp. 23–34). A congruent tale used to be advised by way of the Norton web site on Lagoon Pond, winery Haven, Martha’s winery, Massachusetts, the place the stratigraphic succession consisted of layers of overwhelmed shell, brown earth, and yellow earth grading into the sterile subsoil. Excavations through a neighborhood scholar, E. Gale Huntington, who kindly confirmed me either the positioning and his assortment, produced a more often than not related ordering of fabrics as came across via Bullen at the mainland. The earliest occupants of the yellow-earth area had used huge Snook Kill, or Snook Kill-like, issues of slate and slaty rocks, and it seems that small stemmed issues of quartz. A carbon-14 date of a few. D. 500 (Y-583) for this point is adjudged a lot too past due by way of the excavator, who estimates a thousand B. C. as in the direction of truth, during which the author consents. From the overlying brown earth got here slender stemmed and side-notched issues, a few of the former heavily such as the naked Island variety, steatite potsherds and grit-tempered pottery. within the uppermost stratum, the overwhelmed shell, vast triangular issues prevailed, besides shell-tempered potsherds. A radiocarbon date of round A. D. 900 (Y-582), received close to the ground of the shell, is assumed to be relatively actual (Huntington, 1959).
