Abstract
Initial investigations, consisting of a reconnaissance level study, were conducted in 1994 (Adams and Trinkley 1994:31). Site 38CH1543 was reported as a small scatter of primarily eighteenth century remains situated south of an agricultural pond. Surface visibility in the fields was excellent and 15 shovel tests were excavated at 25-foot intervals in a cruciform across the site. Only five of these tests, however, yielded artifacts. The site core measured about 75 feet north by 100 feet east-west. However, the surface scatter was larger, measuring approximately 225 feet north-south by 250 feet east-west. A shovel cut into the bank of the agricultural pond yielded a colono sherd and some brick fragments, suggesting that the pond impacted the site and the settlement may have been larger than found in the reconnaissance study.
