My big fat Port Tobacco wedding

Today the excavation continued in the Indian King Hotel area. Our excavations focused on Unit 74. This day our excavation uncovered a colonial trash deposit. The deposit yield many pieces of a tin glazed vessel ,a turtle scute ,and a base of a case bottle. The feature was than water screened and will later be floated. When we say a feature is floated it means we are using water to separate particles of different weights.

Tommorrow is our day off and excavations will continue on Thursday. We will continue to focus on following the foundation.

As to the question on wether or not the foundation we found is an old time bandstand or not. The answer is that we do not have any historical records talking about bandstands. Also the area we are digging is to far from the courthouse to be a viable option.

Finally we would like to thank all our volunteers for coming out to dig with us.
