Archeological investigation along Bayou Bartholomew in Ashley County was initiated with the primary objective of establishing a chronological sequence of prehistoric cultures. This paper reports the first season of fieldwork. Emphasis was placed on locating sites and obtaining adequate surface collections while only two sites were tested. The different types of sites and their relationship to the Bayou Bartholomew channels are discussed. Prehistoric occupations from four general periods are outlined, including late Archaic, early to middle Woodland, late Woodland and Mississippi.
