This site (16ST48), dominated by the ancient Castain Oak (2006, Live Oak Society), has provided evidence of human activity though a sequence of aboriginal ceramics dating from the late Tchefuncte (800 BC) and early Marksville (AD 1-400) periods. Shards, bone fragments and shell deposits suggest continuous use by aboriginal people including the Acolapissa, later Choctaw, into the 20th century. Colonial settlers used the excellent clay found here to set up commercial potteries. The last pottery operated until the 1940's.
