Archeaological Dig At The College Of William And Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia

This photo shows a portion of the archaeological dig next to "The Brafferton" on the campus of the College of William and Mary.  They believe they located evidence of an outbuilding that may have been slave quarters.  Hurricane Irene filled some of the low spots with water, but we are certain more digging is to come.  Click here for more photos and information on Brafferton.

I checked your link and wonder what Indian tribe would have been in the area? I know my Plains Indian tribes but unfamiliar with your area. Digs are fascinating and the workers are so meticulous!

Amazing to still find these links to the past today.

Hey there!
I would love to be involved with that! Williamsburg is one layer of history on top of another. It's great that it's all still there.

Sounds like they are slowly piecing together a fascinating history.

I think it is very exacting and hard work, with no certainty in the result. Great.
