Portland Place Dig, August 11, 2012

Dear Friends,

  Tomorrow is our public archaeology day at Portland Place in the Navesink section of Monmouth County.  Students in Monmouth University's Archaeological Field School have been working at the site for the last four weeks.  They have unearthed the remains of what appears to be a 19th-century kitchen, and several sheet middens dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. 

  Visitors are welcome from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.  All participants must sign a waiver of liability.  If you plan on staying for the day please bring your own water and lunch.  If you have a trowel bring it.

  The site is located at 220 Hartshorne Road in the Locust section of Middletown-07760.  A map showing the location is available through this link http://goo.gl/maps/hmrLw

  If you have any questions please contact Richard Veit rveit@monmouth.edu. 

All the best,

Rich Veit
