thoes are some good finds. Think what you missed. Dad has a few indian grinding bowls, and the stones used to grind corn in them. Indian rocks' or arrow heads are death to building ccntractors. If found on the sight it involves a search by archaeologists to catalog all finds The contractor pays all the time spent until everything is found. You don't even want to find a bone. Stan

Stan,
BTDT was on one job site where Myself, the forman and another guy dug out a very large and old leg? bone. We stopped and looked at it and the foreman saw some other people coming our way. He told me to get my butt back in the trackhoe while he put it in my bucket and I swung it and the dirt in the bucket into an articulated dump and off it went before anyone else saw it. A couple years later I was working for another contractor on an expansion job at the campus of U-of-Albany NY setting in a Case super K with a wide ditch bucket scratching an inch of soil at a time while a 4 man crew of araclogists with trowels recovered human bones to relocate their remains to another site. Did that for 5 months and was paid prevailing rate. Nice easy work, but very boreing. On a good day I may have moved 10yd of dirt. The area was said to be a buarial site for deralects that migrated to the Port of Albany during the Revolutionary War period. I don't know who was footing the bill, but we were on a deadline to finish, so site construction could progress. During WWI an Army Depo was constructed on the site. Quanset buildings for storage, etc. When they leveled the land many wooden caskets were disturbed. We found bones and remains of shattered caskets spread all across the site, with very few intact caskets with complete bodies in them

That would be tough to be a building contractor and have workers who couldn't keep quiet.

Bob,
Silence is an unsaid rule in the construction business if you want a paycheck. As Stan said, some of the smallest finds can bring a major construction project to a complete hault for unknown periods of time. If a contractor doesn't have enough work to shift the crew on that site to another, the workers are out of a job until the site is cleared and construction can resume.
Loren
