Our first 1X1 of the season
Yesterday we were lucky enough to have a full workday without a drop of rain! We set up grid points from the 2007-2009 grid and used the gradiometer data from 2009 to choose a couple initial locations for test pits. Our first 1X1 is located over an anomaly at N258 E202, and we were nearly at the base of the plow zone before it finally began to rain. We will hopefully finish the plow zone level today, and map the base... and find out what the anomaly represents. The test pit has so far yielded some flakes (clarence onondaga and huronian cherts) and a tiny fragment of weathered pottery.
