Fieldnotes Says Hello to 2012

Posted by Edward V. Curtin on January 31, 2012 in Archaeology |

Over the past year, our archaeological surveys taken us to communities across eastern New York such as Queensbury, Clifton Park, Halfmoon, Malta, Saratoga Springs, Wilton, Ballston and Ballston Spa, Mechanicville, Albany, Bethlehem, Niskayuna, Johnstown, Argyle, Coxsackie, Colonie, Cohoes, and Cobleskill.  In our spare moments we try to bring you our thoughts and an occasional nice photo or news of an interesting discovery in Fieldnotes.

As we ease toward February, 2012, and I tear my attention away from what appears to be a tall, teetering pile of Phase 1 and Phase 2 survey reports-in-the-making, I anticipate the variety of new posts in the coming months.  Fieldnotes will offer a continuing series of posts on the Archaic period in New York State, utilizing information collected by Curtin Archaeological as much as possible.  There will also be book reviews, and more on environmental archaeology and past records of climate change.  If I get a chance, I will try to mention some recreational reading I found enjoyable, along the lines of thrillers and adventure stories and fascinating non-fiction.  Kerry, Andy, and I will try to pass along interesting stories posted in other sources, archaeological methods and techniques we find helpful, original photos, and with any luck, a bit more on historical archaeology.
