The Arcadia crew completed our first phase of excavations this summer, digging 44 shovel tests in an exploratory shovel testing program. Over 20% of the 50cm x 50 cm tests contain structural features! The torrential downpour last weekend was good and bad: most of our shovel tests flooded (often because of ridiculously high ground water levels); on the other hand, many surface features revealed themselves.
|Intense mapping underway around Structure 2.|
These could be the foundations of a water tower
or a windmill. More evidence necessary, as always.

were gathered using a Total Station and data collector.
