Half way through summer fieldwork.

View of stockade corner facing east.
Today was our last day in the field during our fifth week (tomorrow we will all be going to Mission San Luis in Tallahassee, along with the Arcadia Mill field school), meaning we are half way through our 2012 field season.  After considerable followup work during the past week, the northeastern corner of the presumed 1760 stockade wall at Mission Escambe was finally fully exposed and photo-cleaned, as shown in the photo above.  While the east wall trench is not as unambiguous as we might have hoped, we remain confident that this really is the long-awaited corner to Feature 10.

Great progress is also being made in other units in Areas B, C and E, but more details will have to wait till next week.  For now, a couple of shots from the field today.

A very clear example of incised pottery.
