After many years of waiting, the black stain first discovered by GMU in the 1980’s is being excavated again. Kayla is working hard to figure out the complex layers of feature fill. In the 1980’s GMU did not save the soil from the feature to be waterscreened through window screen mesh, but CART will save all soil for this process. The waterscreen process can and usually does, recover seeds, straight pins, beads, and other small personal items from past peoples. We will begin the waterscreen process of Feature 92 soon, so stay tuned for updates about the artifacts recovered from the black stain at Colchester.
