Excavations continued throughout the week in EUs 1, 3, and 5. Work focused on field excavations; however, Monday was spent in the lab due to adverse weather conditions.
In EU-1, archaeologists reached an approximate depth of 90 cm below surface. This unit has evidence of multiple subsurface work in this area. During excavations, a metal “post” with an associated post-mold was revealed. While on first glance it may appear that the metal fragment is intended to support the modern conduit, this metal fragment is a remnant of an older deposition and was likely inadvertently encountered during the installation of the utility. Archaeologists also encountered an old excavation unit that was likely a part of the 1979 investigations conducted by Ivey and Fox. Artifacts include construction material, ceramics, lithics, and a possible comb.
