First Day on the Site: Walking Surveys


First day on the site today! Went quite well, we were able to cover a lot of land (around 100 acres through corn fields) and do walking surveys. The findings included ceramic sherds of various colors and styles, a small amount of stone flake debitage and some glass. No full projectile points yet! Tomorrow will be more of the walking surveys, with shovel tests later in the week.

I’ve got super sore legs and slight sun burn, but all in all it was a successful day on site! I will continue to share experiences/finds during the course of the summer.

Here are the links for a few ceramics-analysis documents that I found particularly useful:
