Jamaica State Park Archaeology Dig: Day 3, August 11


Work is going well...Many more artifacts were recovered. In one, 1 x 1 m test unit, we uncovered what appears to be a fire hearth of some kind surrounded by what appear to be postmolds or the outline of what were once posts in the ground. The pattern does not suggest a particular outline (such as a house pattern or a fish-drying rack) but we are opening up larger, 2 x 2 m blocks in order to try and expose more patterning.
