A Visit from the Arthur Morgan School (aka a great day at Garden Creek)

From now on, when I chat with an archaeologist who’s feeling tired and slow midway through a field season, I will have one recommendation: invite students from the Arthur Morgan School in Burnsville, NC to your site for an afternoon. Today, several students, their instructors, and USFS archaeologist Scott Ashcraft dropped by Garden Creek, where they received a tour of the site and provided tremendous help busting plowzone over Unit 12. This 2×1 will be the last unit we excavate as part of GCAP, and it will yield some more earthwork ditch profiles from which I can get better micromorphology samples. Thanks to the enthusiasm and excavation/screening talents of the AMS team, we are a lot further along this week than I expected — and that’s a great place to be with less than two weeks in the field to go! Thanks so much to this young crew for the shot in the arm on “distractingly beautiful” March day!
