Resuming Excavations at 38PN35

Dates for the upcoming excavation season at archaeological site 38PN35, in Pickens County, have been set. Work will begin on Monday, May 16 and continue through Friday, June 10. The first week will be spent preparing the site, removing fill from last years excavations, repairing equipment, etc., and although all are welcome to come and assist, we will not require volunteers that week. 
Beginning on Monday, the 23rd, we will need a number of volunteers, and can use them for the remainder of the excavations. Two excavations will be conducted simultaneously; one will explore the Mississippian cultural component; the palisade(s), structural remains, etc., and the other will excavate the Archaic cultural components, which are buried deeper in the ground.  Both are equally interesting.
To alleviate the problems of travel for our volunteers, we are attempting to acquire lodging for those that wish to stay overnight. For those wishing to stay for an extended time, we would like to have the dates that you plan to stay so that we can plan for lodging. Please send me this information as soon as you have decided what you wish to do. We are looking forward to a fun season of excavations and hope that many of you will decide to join us.
