A Typical Woodland-period house

This house is most likely a Connestee-era house, which was built of wooden poles and bark in a circular shape. The Connestee began around 200 A.D. in the Swannanoa-Pigeon region. This period was a mix of their predecesors and their current neighbors. Connestee villages were larger than Woodland period ones, but daily Connestee life was similar to Piedmont Woodland life.
