Working in the western part of our site, Megan identified part of a post hole in the southeast corner of an MTU.
Accordingly, we are expanding into a full sized unit to fully expose.
Now, this could be nothing more than a later fenceline; but, a good number of artifacts diagnostic to the colonial period have been recovered from the immediate vicinity suggesting and the feature could represent a post-in-ground structure. It may not have the luster of a stone foundation, but this could help us understand the range of activities within the Morris Pound town lot from the more elaborate construction along the main road to the more mundane in the back. It may not be sexy, but it has the potential to tell us more about life in Old Colchester. Yay for archaeology!
