Broaddus Flats: Recent Activities
August 2014

Recent cooler and low-humidity weather has brought out a small crew to Broaddus Flats site. We finished removing and sifting all the topsoil from the most recent 10' square excavation unit. This soil is laden with artifacts: house nails, pottery shards, English wine bottle fragments, pipe parts, small bone fragments from food scraps, Indian pottery fragments, and another triangular stone arrowhead.

We will now make a drawing of the surface of the subsoil layer and check for any disturbances into it, such as features like postholes. These will be recorded on the drawing.
