The survey crew finished their mapping of the southern earthwork of Fort Confederation and barracks; they plotted nearly 600 points across the terrain using the survey station which will result in a great topographic map. In addition, Jordan and Lauren finished excavating unit 47 at the wall area, revealing (mostly) a huge tree root.

Lastly, finds of the day are multiple pieces of Choctaw pottery with recatlinear engravings, and a deer's lower jawbone with teeth still in it. Eleanor found her pottery piece a few meters directly south from my unit, and Rattlesnake Ron and Brian found their piece in their unit from the 2012 season as they we're cleaning it up. Littlefoot, in addition to her forty-plus nails, excavated the eerie looking jawbone and teeth one meter to the south of my unit.
