Feature 92

After about a month of careful excavation and usually more questions than answers, Kayla has just finished a unit in the area above the large black stain (Feature 92).  This feature contains many oysters shells, burnt wood, and smoking pipes, and with the soil being processed through water-screen mesh we will recover any smaller artifacts.  We still do not understand the purpose of the feature or the full extent of the deposit, but hopefully our motto will apply…”the answer is always in the next test unit”.
