Weekend Schedule

Just a quick word for today. Pete and I finished the surface collection of the northern part of the field just south of Port Tobacco proper. Yep; we have a Jim-Dandy 18th-century site with a prehistoric component. Given the large number and diversity of fine 18th-century ceramics, I suspect this dwelling site also served as a tavern. (Not really that much of a stretch...most Colonial period dwellings in ports probably served as taverns when the tobacco fleet arrived.)

Weather permitting, we expect to continue with the surface collection of Mr. Edelen's fields all weekend. Volunteers welcome!
