This week at the Southeastern Archaeological Conference meetings in Tampa, FL, I will be presenting a poster detailing the early results from work at the 31Yd173 site. This will present the sedimentology results obtained in the spring as well as early patterns in feature and artifact distributions found during this last summer’s excavations. The sedimentology results give us a picture of what the microlandscape (area immediately surrounding the site) looked like during the time this area was used. The early analysis of features and artifacts suggests we may have a small settlement. However, much more work in this area is needed. Here is a link to download the poster:
Work at the site is ongoing throughout the year, and I will be periodically posting results and pictures. Just click the “AGIS Lab Research Projects” link to the right to follow our progress and to see all of the projects being done in the lab.
