This weekend the ASNJ and Monmouth University teamed up to conduct a salvage archaeology project at the Hendrickson Farm in Middletown, Monmouth County, NJ. The project was directed by Monmouth County Park System and ASNJ member Kristen Norbut. Numerous ASNJ members and Monmouth University students assisted with the dig. Richard Veit took dendrochronology samples and Adam Heinrich gathered measurements for a future 3D render of the building. We had a successful day on Saturday, having excavated three units (2 3-foot square units and 1 five-foot square unit). Several features were identified, included a probable early 19th-century smokehouse foundation. We are really excited to see Kristen's forthcoming interpretations compiled from gathered data, historical research, and artifact analysis.
Thanks to all. It was so great digging with you on such a beautiful weekend day.
