Search of a Teepee Ring
Derek and his crew first
began excavating their site believing that it might yield a teepee
ring. An arc of stones and visible debitage on the surface were
what originally led PIT leaders to excavate this particular site.
The crew followed a large rock ridge, which Derek surmised might
have been placed there on purpose, but he was still uncertain about
its placement at the end of the project. The crew found few artifacts
as they moved through the site.
The crew did find a
large piece of sandstone in level 1. It had dimpling and some wear,
but Derek did not believe it to be a metate. It was found in an
isolated location and looked as if the rock was placed there on
