Washingtonville site investigation - Day two.

Today, on one of the hottest, muggiest days of 2008, we created a matrix of test holes to survey the relative concentration of artifacts over the balance of the site. 
Eighteen pits yielded a striking distribution of clues.

The highest number and most interesting items were recovered from pits #3 & 4 as seen in the bags at the upper corner of the table. A square was then excavated between those two pits. Along just one edge, numerous fire cracked stones, chert chips, apparently unused hammer stones, and a small number of bases and tips were discovered.  An afternoon thunderstorm then sent us off for the day.
