This chapter presents an analysis of ceramic artifacts collected during recent Audrey site excavations. Jar rims are seriated using established chronological sequences from Cahokia; these patterns are considered in conjunction with AMS dates from four features to date the site to Cahokia’s early Stirling phase (AD 1100–1150). An interregional comparative analysis of ceramic temper, surface finish, orifice diameter, and vessel class from the Audrey site, Greater Cahokia, and northern hinterland regions is conducted to determine the degree to which Audrey inhabitants adopted Cahokian potting practices and/or retained traditional Woodland-era potting techniques and foodways. Finally, the presence of exotic, non-Cahokian pottery at Audrey and northern hinterland sites is considered as potential evidence for interregional exchange and interaction among northern groups.
