Over the next couple of weeks, we will be wrapping up work for the summer. Matt Kalos, fellow graduate student, offers a summary of our plan for the rest of the summer.
As we reached the end of Week Five, we are coming down the home stretch with only two weeks of digging left for the summer. With limited time remaining, we are aiming to continue our broad overview of the site. Specifically, we are going to be opening several units in the coming weeks. As opposed to digging until we reach "sterile" soil, as we discussed in our Week Four Recap, we are going to attempt to understand the formation of the walls that we have exposed. The units that we open are going to be excavated to the level of the walls, and not any deeper (at this time). This methodology provides us with the ability to see where the walls "turn;" therefore, gaining insight into the extent of the structures that once occupied the back lots.
