I recently had the pleasure to participate in Dr. Jay Franklin’s excavation of the Rotherwood Site in Kingsport Tn. Dr. Franklin had planned to excavate a large town site on the Nolichucky this Summer but last minute changes meant that our planned excavation was pushed back until December. Jay and S.D. Dean had previously tested the Rotherwood site and located what appeared to be a shell pit or shell lense. As the excavation progressed it turned out to be a wonderful excavation and I’ll post more when I get chance.
