Abstract: Salvage archeology at the Hobson Site (33Ms-2) on the Ohio River 1 ½ miles downstream from Middleport, Meigs County, Ohio, has revealed an important Fort Ancient component. On the basis of the dominant pottery types, the component is assigned to the Feurt Phase. It is suggested that the site represents the early Feurt Phase, and the age of the site is estimated as approximately 1100-1200 A.D. Minor traces of Archaic, Woodland, and later Late Prehistoric components were also noted.
