Last Tuesday we filled in our last units with the help of some kind Pardeesville folks (thanks Jack!). We raked the soil flat and laid grass seed over the closed units. Back at the Tamarack Street field house in Hazleton, we washed as many artifacts as we could before placing them into sandwich bags and packing them in boxes for transport. I spent one last day in Pardeesville to say goodbye (for now) to some of the folks that helped us out over this last month.  Thanks to everyone for sharing your photos, stories, and assistance! We are blown away as much by the amazing history we have uncovered as the warm and generous community we have become acquainted with.

There is a lot more to post about over the next year!  I have a few posts ready to go from Myles and Bev. I will also be writing about some of our finds and our labwork. In addition, there are some mysteries from the field we may ask your help with. Keep in contact!
