Who wants to go?!
Quote this message in a reply
I've posted about this place before, in Montpelier, VT. Just saw a bit on the news about it. Next dig is going to be early spring, when they're going to be concentrating on a slave quarters area on the property! I'm definitely going. Would be cool if some of ya'll can sign-up too, and we can meet up there! Ron went, and said it's fantastic.

Sounds like an awesome time. But like Bones, I am sure I'm not gonna be able to get away for it. Can't wait to see what's found. Do you get to keep stuff?

I highly doubt they're going to let any of that stuff off the property, but, for me, it's the adventure. Meeting other detectorists. Getting to hold stuff like that in my hands. If I can get a photo with a piece, I'm happy. Life is about experiences. Fun road trip, new frontiers...can't ask for much more than that, IMO.

This is an life experience thing! Do not do it if you are expecting a ton of fantastic finds. All the areas are predetermined and are gridded off before you ever show up. You will then be assigned a grid and you will check each 10x10 segment and you and your intern will record up to 5-6 targets in each square. All finds that are recorded are tagged and bagged. Many targets are left in the ground.

Pretty cool to work with the archaeologists and interns and see how they do things and perceive our hobby.

I had fun and met some really cool people. Matt Reeves, the head archaeologist, is a really cool guy.

No, you do not get to keep anything and we actually found very few non ferrous targets. The majority of what our group found were square nails. But we were primarily working an out building area in the woods.

I am glad I attended and now I have a cool certificate to show landowners! Wink
