The Coahatchee site (1CC53) in Conecuh County, Alabama, was excavated in 1995 by Panamerican Consultants for the Alabama Department of Transportation (Lolley 1996). Phase II and III excavations were conducted to mitigate potential impacts to a portion of the site to be affected by a bridge replacement over Cane Creek. Surface mapping, shovel testing, and excavation of approximately 65 sq. m (Figure 1) of the site indicated that Coahatchee was a well-stratified site with components ranging from the Early Archaic to Mississippian periods. Judging from the large collection of plain and decorated Weeden Island ceramics, primary occupation of the site occurred during the Late Woodland. Radiocarbon dates obtained from three feature samples indicate the site occupation dates from about AD 520 to 1020.
