Results from intern Ben Curran

Intern Ben Curran scanned and rectified historic and archaeological maps of the Puddle Dock neighborhood that depict landscape changes over time. These maps will now be availablefor state management and research.

Curran also conducted a Ground Penetrating Radar survey to create GIS maps to identify archaeologically sensitive areas around the Chase House, Hough House, Marshall Pottery, and Puddle Dock. The scans of a filled in foundation near the Marshall Pottery site may have revealed the location of a Jewish ceremonial Mikvah bath. The scans of Puddle Dock are being analyzed to determine the potential affects of tidal change of the water table.
