The Georgia Type Collection at the Florida Museum is based on the work of Robert Wauchope. The majority of sherds were recovered from the surveys conducted by Wauchope in northern Georgia during the 1930s (Wauchope 1966), with later contributions by Charles Fairbanks and other UF Anthropology faculty.

Wauchope assigned numbers to Georgia pottery types and these numbers were used to identify each sherd. Here, we have organized ware types by general period and/or cultural affiliation, offering updated ware type names when known. We welcome your feedback on these galleries.
