The Catfish Point Site is a prehistoric site located on an eroding, low terrace along the east shore of Perdido Bay. Phase I investigations consisted of the excavation of 15 shovel tests in the site area and a shoreline artifact collection which indicated that prehistoric remains are present on the site. Prehistoric artifacts recovered consist of 102 lithic artifacts, including several projectile points and ground stone tools as well as flakes. Theprehistoric component is clearly the remains of an Archaic site. Two diagnostic point types, a Morrow Mountain and a Savannah River (generally 4,000-7000 years ago), as well as three unidentified stemmed points, an extensively reworked stemmed point, and a stem fragment indicate that the site dates from the Middle to Late Archaic Periods. In addition to the identifiable points, a distal end point fragment, a chert preform/biface, a quartz cobble pitted muller, four metate/anvilstone fragments, two utilized flakes, and 79 primary decortification and tertiary flakes were recovered. Among the tertiary flakes were 30 Tallahatta quartzite and 5 chert biface thinning flakes. Of the 102 artifacts,77% are made from Tallahatta quartzite. Heavily patinated white chert and coastal plain chert artifacts were also recovered. Ground stone artifacts are made of quartz, sandstone, and hematite. These Catfish Point Site Archaic Period remains are rare for the northern Gulf coastal region.
