About the Event
This presentation provides an overview of the ongoing archaeological project taking place along the railroad tracks generally around the intersection of Eureka and West Stuart Avenue. Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI) started the investigation in May 2019 in advance of downtown developments that will include restaurants and commercial spaces, a brewery and distillery, a coffee shop, and a parking garage. SRI has recovered hundreds of archaeological features and thousands of artifacts from the various project areas.
The presentation will explain the methods we are using to discover the features (non-portable artifacts) and artifact recovery techniques that are now accessible.
