Here's some real archaeology to start.
The June issue of Legacy (a biannual publication of the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology) contains a summary article about the archaeological field school that I directed last spring at 38FA608, a stratified site on the Broad River north of Columbia.
Laboratory processing of the materials from the field school has been proceeding all summer. The artifacts have been washed and most have been cataloged. The next steps will be to consolidate the basic artifact information in a database, label many of the individual lithic and ceramic artifacts, and develop plans for analysis.
The information and materials we recovered provide numerous threads to pull on. My first questions will be basic ones, aimed at building our understanding of the natural and cultural stratigraphy at the site. I'll submit multiple, strategically-selected carbon samples for dating to aid in that regard. We've certainly got enough material from the buried Mack component to start asking interesting questions about that period of the site's occupation. Stay tuned.
