Fete Day 2012

 Yesterday was Fete Day at Elfreth's Alley.  Current Temple University graduate student Matt Kalos and undergraduate alum Paul Pluta were on hand at the site to explain the project to the public.  On view were an open test excavation unit and some of the artifacts from last summer's explorations.  Throngs of visitors were thrilled to see a real archaeological investigation in person, especially at a place as rich in history as Elfreth's Alley.  They were full of wonderful questions about the project, and many vowed to come back later in the summer to see what we discover in following weeks.  All in all it was a great day and a great way to start the season!
