Archaeology Update for the Week of October 23
IT’S STILL RAINING……….
Unfortunately, the rain has continued to fall in New Braunfels. As of Wednesday, the area is forecasted to receive an additional one to three inches of rainfall so excavations at 41CM204 are on hold for the week until the rain has moved out of the area. Fortunately, there was a break in the rain on Monday afternoon and Josh and Mindy were able to excavate the hearth feature (Feature #44) in Block C before the rains ultimately came and cancelled excavations for the week. Excavation Photo of the Hearth Feature Uncovered in Units 1 and 2 during the opening days of the excavations at 41CM204. It was excavated Monday morning before the rains.We’re continuing to limit access to the blocks this week in order for the mud to dry out and minimize disturbance in the hopes of returning to the field next week (October 30th). Stay Tuned for additional updates next week as we hope to continue to uncover the burned rock midden exposed the previous week in Block D and opening a new excavation block (Block A) in along the eastern edge of the site. In the meantime, please be sure to check out our YouTube channel!
