Analysis of plant and animal data from the Sandy site (44RN220) indicates a short-term seasonal encampment geared toward the collection of medicinal plants and the hunting of deer. The plant assemblage is dominated by medicinal plants, in particular bearsfoot, with relatively fewer remains of the typical staple plant foods, maize and hickory. Small amounts of other plants with medicinal qualities were also identified, including bedstraw, holly, and wax myrtle. The faunal remains consist almost entirely of white-tailed deer skeletal elements; analysis of body part distributions produced a reverse utility curve, an outcome that strongly suggests a short-term butchery/kill site.
