We’ve set our sights on some achievable goals for the season. We’ll be doing a small amount of work in the foundation itself: creating some large profile drawings and working on a nearby feature. But most of our efforts will be directed toward a broad scale exploration of the farmstead area. We’d like to be sure that we’ve sampled each of the zones around the house carefully, in the event that the barn or the earlier pre-1750 dwelling is nearby. With the help of Dr. Steinberg, we’ve established a strategy that assures us that the 30m perimeter around the house has been evenly sampled. We begin work on these units on Monday. Stay tuned for updates!
