Trench 9 crew: Sara Rodriguez, Brent Coffman, Jacy Moore, and Alea Dugan (from Trench 6).
Day of the 2013 field season provided more support for the hypothesis that the standing walls in the site used to be house boundaries. Hundreds of earthenware sherds and faunal remains (mostly deer bones) were recovered from three trenche units opened up so far. The shovel test probe team opened up a new trench (trench 9) in the area where an infant burial might be located.
An accidental flooding of Trench 6 (an irrigation channel upstream accidentally sent water to where trench 6 is) stopped all excavation activities in the affected unit. It took most of the day to drain the trench witht he help of the SITMo boys.
