Where We Excavated
During a previous survey of the site, we were fortunate in locating the original site datums used by Bordes during his excavation.  This allowed us to set up our grid system so that it matches perfectly with his, thus ensuring that the newly excavated objects will be correlated perfectly in space with his.   We then installed several permanent datums around the site so that we can begin each season with exactly the same coordinates.  

This map shows what the site looked like after the setup was complete, with the shaded squares being those that we began excavating this year.
