Thanks to Bill & Eric for lugging projection equipment up to the meeting room.
VP, Chuck Tudor, presiding with Fred filling in for Sharon who is recovering from surgery. Fred, Program Chairman, also had the privilege of introducing our speaker, Bill Engelbrecht.
Bill discussed his 17 summer archaeological field schools on the Eaton site in western New York in addition to the research done at the site over the last hundred or so years. Bill's excavations were done in 2 metre squares as shown in the post mold diagram below. It clearly shows a portion of the palisade and layout of three longhouses.
