We are still having a problem with flooded units, most likely due to the high water table. We were able to pump some of the water out in hopes to see the bottom of the privy, but we could not keep up with the water. Hopefully in a couple of days the water table will drop and we can get to the bottom of the privy.
Allen, one of Sheila’s volunteers, has been putting artifact information into a computer database. Yesterday he reported that the Chase House excavations for 2008 and 2009 have uncovered over 20,000 artifacts and that he still has many artifacts to catalog! It will be exciting to find out exactly how many artifacts were recovered from the Chase House once the dig wraps up.
