This Bibb County, Alabama site was first reported in 1979 by a local person. It is located in the Cahaba River drainage in an area of approximately 100 meters by 30 meters. There is a small mound located at the site (20 meters by 10 meters by 1 meter high). Caleb Curren and Ned Jenkins formally recorded the site in 1979. They visited the site and made surface collections and cross-sectioned a refuse pit eroding from a road cut. A burial urn and cover were found at the site by local people. The skeleton of a child was found in a globular jar (Mississippi Plain var. Warrior) covered by a flared rim bowl. The bowl was incised on the interior rim with the designs of concentric line schrolls alternating with zig-zag lines (Alabama River Incised). Based on the survey sample, the site is Moundville I and Moundville IV.
