Meanwhile, unit 126 continued its excavation without encountering any architectural features, which we now suspect is because the unit is where the porch of the house would have been. This would explain the high concentration of nails mentioned in last weeks progress update. The crew working there have not found much since last week, but have continued excavating due to a few anomalous pieces of broken glass found deeper in their unit. Pictured below is crew member Mandy Charest standing in the unit to excavate while her partner Amanda Mikulli (crew) screens dirt from the unit for artifacts.
Next week we will continue to excavate all three units, and possibly put in a new unit if we finish the excavation of unit 126. Check back soon for any exciting find updates, field lab announcements, and further progress reports!
