The excavation teams spread across the front yard of the Courthouse.

Filling out paperwork by the well.

A shovel test pit encountered brick and mortar that appeared to be in place.

Peter instructs some volunteers on how to excavate a unit.

The excavation unit excavated to explore the brick and rubble filled STP.

Remember when I said we laid out 60 STPs for the weekend?
Well in the last two days our volunteer crew has excavated about 100 STPs and we still have all day Sunday to work! There were over 30 volunteers today alone. We couldn't have asked for a better group of enthusiastic and energetic people. Special thanks to Charlie Hall, Maryland Terrestrial Archaeologist, who help survise and instruct the participants.
