Excavations based on the
Geophysical Survey Results

Cheryl Munson and Jon Criss carefully exposing the subterranean floor of the burned house.
The red in the soil is fired clay wall plaster,
or daub, from the building’s fallen wall.


The excavated base of the house floor in Block 10.
Note the burned timbers from the structure lying on the floor.
The dark soil in the center of the trench is the fill of the house wall trench.


Block 11: Excavated to “ground truth” small radar anomalies which were found to be located in the approximate position of pit features.
