Day 3

Our progress so far

Beth, Pamela, and Karen working in their units
Chris and the spur he found
Today we continued in the units we opened up yesterday. In the morning Chris, a new volunteer this year, uncovered a spur (Image 4). So far, it has been one of the most interesting finds of the year. Mother nature was working on our clock today and decided to send the rain storm during lunch. Some of us, however, had to eat in the downpour. The sun return just in time to start again and we were able to continue. By the end of the day is was becoming clear that the large area we opened up may be one of the areas that Deetz worked during the 1968 excavation. The artifact rich soil was broken up by 4 1/2 foot squares evenly spaced. So tomorrow we will do our best to clear up what this feature is.
