The crew worked at the Burch House today. We have successfully uncovered the foundation to the Burch House addition. It measures about 12 ft by 12 ft.

The foundation rests on top of fill and naturally formed deposits. The lowest layers have produced large quantities of bone and 18th-century artifacts that are wholly unconnected to the much later deposits created by Washington Burch and his family from the 1860s to circa 1900.

This Saturday, in front of the court house, we will have a public lab day during which we will wash the 18th-century material, as well as the later artifacts. All welcome, 9 AM to 3 PM, rain or shine. (We'll work indoors if it rains, but that seems unlikely, at least until the afternoon.)
