Signup for one to four weeks on the archeological field crew at the German Site (11C377)
Join the CAA field crew at German Site, The German Site is a Late Woodland / Jersey Bluff Phase (ca 800-1200 CE) habitation site located in the Crawford Creek valley. Geophysical survey results indicate several possible structures and associated features. One of the house basins and nearby features were excavated during the 2019 season. Excavators recovered domestic artifacts, including chert tools, pottery, animal bone, and botanical remains. In 2021 we will continue to excavate house basins and associated features in order to better understand Late Woodland people of the Lower Illinois Valley.
