|Sunrise on the Great Works
||A discussion on the strategy for excavating the collapsed
chimney in the parlor, fondly dubbed "the brick yard."
||A closeup of the parlor chimney, which collapsed into
the cellar. The subsoil in the right background marks the outside edge
of the cellar.
||The crew works on the right end of the lean-to, which
served as the kitchen. The work focused around the back door of the lean-to,
where the finds included a French cooking pot. A small horseshoe found
near the door sill probably was nailed above the sill to bring good luck
and ward off evil spirits.
||Another hectic day at the dig.
||Jason in his pit, including the front wall of the cellar.
||More work in the lean-to.
