Spring in December?!?

IMG_2451Jonathan and Chris took advantage of the highly unseasonable weather (check out the short sleeves!) to move some dirt at Old Colchester.  It was a great day to dig and a great day of digging.  Jonathan even found a relatively large piece of lead shot.  Usually, we find shot in the window mesh recovery, most likely bird shot.  We are guessing that this one recovered from 1/4″ is buck.
