Today, 6-23-99, we had another very productive day.  Square 10R190 was worked on intensively, as we are trying to get through the plowzone to a layer of soil called 'midden'.  The midden is a rich organic soil that is sometimes associated with house floors.  It is the result of the build-up of debris from people living there.  Beverly worked all morning flat shoveling here, and scooped up some neat artifacts. Amy found two projectile points and a ground stone disk while sifting through Beverly's dirt.
    Things are also moving along quickly in the deep test unit 40R200.  Since the top of level 15 has been photographed and mapped, we started to excavate the dirt around the rock clusters and charcoal concentrations.
