This June, I am fortunate to be working with an excellent crew.
These hardworking archaeologists agreed to wake up early on a Saturday to locate the next set of units we plan to excavate. We used a total station to stake out several different locations over top subsurface anomalies identified during magnetometry survey. All of these units are much closer to Mound No. 2, so we have high hopes that they will yield interesting archaeological deposits. By getting this part of the job done over the weekend, we’ll be able to hit the ground running on Monday — in other words, excavation!
