|Upper Catawba Archaeology | Western North Carolina | Field School 2005|
Dates for the 2005 Field School were June 20th- July 15th.
Our plans for fieldwork in 2005 included further excavations of one of the four burnt structures in the area north of the mound at the Berry site, further excavations in areas between and around these burnt structures, and geophysical survey of another nearby site that probably represents an aboriginal village contemporary with the native town at the Berry site.
Thanks for your interest in our study of native chiefdoms in western North Carolina and their early encounters with European explorers. Please check back here for updates about our archaeological fieldwork in the upper Catawba Valley and surrounding areas.
