Archaeology at Fort Saint-Louis 2019 - Part 3

A beautiful day at Fort St. Louis and Wow was it warm. Lots of water on site and we slowed the pace a little.


Marion joined the crew again. This is her third year excavating at the site. She is taking a few minutes to see what is happening at the other dig unit and discuss her findings underway at Operation F.


Large roots are often an obstacle. We work around them rather than remove them. This one will be reburied when we close up the dig.


In Operation J today, we began to see the next section of stone wall! Very exciting as we try to understand what buildings or structures were here so long ago.
