The Burrell Orchard site is a Late Archaic period seasonal base camp dating between 1700 and 2300 BC. In 2008, Museum archaeologists first investigated this locality and discovered extensive, buried midden deposits and the remains of activities that included the butchering of deer, hide-smoking, and the processing of nuts and other seasonal foods. In addition, the remains of a possible house structure, consisting of layered clay floors, were identified. This season's project will expose additional area of the possible house floor and sample the buried midden deposits at several locations.
Field school participants commute to the site daily and bring their own lunches and water. Portable toilets are provided; camping is not permitted. For additional information, please contact email@example.com.
