East Extramural Area: June 6, 2007

  This area is located outside the block of rooms, in the plaza. This area was chosen because we wanted to investigate the uses of shared public space at Creswell. First, we marked off the one by four meter unit that we want to excavate. Once we defined the area, we removed a top layer of silty, sandy sediment with shovels. We did not screen this dirt for artifacts because it is only windblown sand that has accumulated there recently. We stopped digging when we came to a layer of harder packed, red dirt that began to yield a few artifacts, including some small sherds of pottery and a few lithics.
