site offered one of the most intriguing opportunities for PIT volunteers.
Michelle's crew found a series of flat bedrock slabs at the north
end of their pit which turned into upright slabs at the western
end of the trench. As the group moved further west, they found that
the bedrock slabs ended abruptly, which may indicate the existence
of some type of structure at the site. What puzzled Michelle was
that the feature was elongated rather than round, which is a different
shape than a traditional pit house.
the south end of the trench, the crew found a deep cist, which may
have been used for storage. If there was indeed a structure at this
site, Michelle believed it would have been placed just outside of
this area. Because of this possibility, the crew continued to look
for a floor in the site--going inside the rock alignment. Cultural
debris, such as debitage and bone, were located throughout the site.
