Archaeological Excavations at the Trogdon-Squirrel Creek Site


Brad Hatch and NC DOT discuss the Trogdon-Squirrel Creek Site

As part of the Archaeological Lecture Series, OSA will host Brad Hatch of Dovetail Cultural Resources Group (Dovetail) and NC DOT Staff Archaeologists as they discuss finds at the Trogdon-Squirrel Creek site (31RD1426) in Randolph County, North Carolina. Excavations focused on an early nineteenth-to early twentieth-century Quaker farmstead. This investigation resulted in the recovery of over 20,000 artifacts and revealed a dwelling with stone piers, an associated outbuilding, and cultural landscape features. Please join us as we discuss this new contribution to North Carolina’s agrarian history.
