After a brief hiatus from digging outside the OCPP Cemetery, CART has returned and upon our triumphant return to the field we were greeted by a few of our favorite wood friends!
You may have guessed that the snakes and mice were not discovered in the same excavation blocks. We found them on opposite ends of the site. It appears the snakes and mice had hunkered down in our well-covered units for the winter and had babies. We don’t expect to see much more of them this spring or summer, but that’s okay the excitement of this one day is enough to last a lifetime!
Come join us in the field to see what else excitement lies within our excavation!
