Last week of Field School

We are nearing the end of the summer 2009 field season at Arcadia Mill. All of the 1x1 meter and 1x2 meter units have been documented and backfilled! We are using the last few days of field school to document our Block 1 excavations by photographing and mapping each unit as well as the block as a whole.

We have taken several wide-angle photographs of the entire block as well as individual unit photographs. It is very important to document all of the profiles/stratigraphy (sides) as well as the plan view perspective (floor) for each unit.

We have found some very neat artifacts and pictures are soon to come! The block yielded many personal items including eating utensils, buttons, pipe bowls, and pipe stems. Check the blog again soon for artifact photos and a comprehensive analysis of the excavation results!
