Mockley Pottery

Mockley is a type of ceramic made from clay mixed with crushed shell, such as oyster shell. It is characterized by cord or net impressions on the outside surfaces. Vessels are typically medium to large in size. Mockley ware dates from the Middle Woodland archaeological period, about 200 to 900 A.D. This type of pottery is commonly found in the coastal plains from Delaware to Virginia, and is often associated with Selby Bay/Fox Creek projectile points.
