The Plan!!
• Arrive Saturday morning. Madeline and Amandah will give a brief overview of the site and archaeology in the area, and discuss safety items for the project.
• We will split into groups and travel to site by boat or on foot.
• Groups will be divided into surface survey, excavation, or shovel testing, depending on interest.
• This is supposed to be a relaxed and enjoyable way to learn archaeology, especially if you have never done it before! If you want a break, or wish to only stay for part of a day, that’s ok!
