Pluggin Away

How large is a 40-acre field? Look at the picture. That shows one third of it, and it isn't even the part with most of the artifacts. I took the picture this past weekend (hence the gloomy sky). The corn is only a few inches high and I have both witnessed and performed some remarkable pirouettes and other dance moves to avoid stomping on a corn plant.

Pete, Elsie and me continued with flagging, mapping, and collecting. We continue to better define the early 18th-century site while identifying and identifying new aboriginal sites, primarily dating to the Late Archaic period.

I anticipate another two days in the field and another two days cataloguing. Artifact washing is up to date.

We should return the middle of next week...we have some other projects over the weekend.
