Rain threatened all morning but we were able to work until lunch without getting wet. After lunch it began drizzling and finally around 1:30 we closed the site and headed back to the field camp for some artifact washing and discussion of mapping our excavation units. Work is going very well; each of the excavation units is different. We have what appears to be a portion of a second burned structure in square N866E212. This area corresponds to Anomaly #3 on the 1997 proton-magnetometer survey.
Field crew for Week 2. Front Row: Wayne Bray, Zoe Keefer-Norris, Nikki Keese. Middle Row: Chris Rodning, Linda Wall, Rachel Horn, Kip Kummerle, Bill Robb. Back Row: Caroline Ketron, Emily Dale, Aaron Brummitt, Paul Mantia, Will Spoon, Jared Garland, Randy Keese.
Today in unit N866E212 Randy found a small triangular point made from east Tennessee jasper.
Elizabeth Furr practices cutting profiles in N866E212.
Some of our new excavation units will be 3 meters by 3 meters rather than 2 by 2 meters. Here, David checks the corner pins for the next excavation unit. Bill, Kip, and Wayne, used the triangulation method to place the pin.
