  • “A team of scientists exploring Springs Preserve with remote-sensing gear [Ground Penetrating Radar –ed.] has found what appears to be a prehistoric village of pit houses where as many as 30 Anasazi people lived about 1,300 years ago, the preserve’s archaeologist said Friday.” This is the full version of the ‘breaking news’ version I just posted.
    This is the project I was the archaeologist for from 2000 – 2005. We dug the pit house that yielded the radiocarbon dates.

    I was the archaeologist at the Springs from 2000 – 2005. We dug the partially excavated pit house they reference in 2003.
