Recent research on Early Woodland domestic sites in the Middle Ohio River Valley has included sites on the valley floors of the Hocking and Muskingum rivers in southeastern Ohio and sites in surrounding upland settings along secondary drainages. The 2008 investigations at Site 33H0706 in the Hocking River floodplain near Rockbridge, Ohio provide important new information on a little-documented Early Woodland period settlement component, the seasonally-occupied floodplain camp, with radiocarbon-dated features that cluster between 390- 240 B. C. and 170- 90 B.C (cal, 2 sigma) and date no earlier than cal. 410 B.C. This article summarizes the results ofthe excavations at Site 3 3 HO 706, adding to the growing database on Early Woodland settlement in southeastern Ohio. Though located in a major river bottom, where larger and perhaps permanently occupied sites are known to occur. Site 33H0706 is somewhat unique in that it lacks plants of the Eastern Agricultural Complex but contains pottery and possible evidence of multiple structures.
