This chapter describes site stratigraphy. Site deposition appears to have been dominated by windblown sand that was sufficient to bury lithic assemblages creating a stratified sequence at Harney Flats. Excavation profiles at Harney Flats were dominated by some two meters of pedogenically modified sands. The upper 1.6 meters of sand contained archaeological deposits dominated by a Bolen/Suwannee component concentrated from 100 to 130 centimeters below surface and a Newnan component from roughly 60 to 90 centimeters below surface. A much more ephemeral later period ceramic component was present from about 40 to 60 centimeters below surface. Of significance is that a dense hardpan soil zone present from about 75 to 85 centimeters below surface prevented stratigraphic mixing of the Newnan and Bolen/Suwannee assemblages.
