Washing Virtually Completed!

That's right...we have about a half of bag at my office requiring washing and that is it...all of the material recovered this spring has been washed and it looks like the team is nearly finished cataloguing. We shut down the lab operation at Crownsville yesterday and I'll pick up the rest of the artifacts from Port Tobacco tomorrow.

Thank you, volunteers, for having contributed so much of your time to keeping the ball rolling this year. We are ahead of schedule and should be able to thoughtfully plan our October field effort, basing our decisions on analyses of the washed and catalogued artifacts. Special thanks to Elsie, Carol, Maxine, and Sharon...also Bruce Thompson at the Maryland Historical Trust for being a gracious host.
