On day 5 we got started with the below-ground portion of the field school doing some historic archaeology at the Pierre Dorlac House owned by Jim Baker. We opened up two excavation units in the yard, One to expose the foundation of an exterior stone chimney that has since been removed but is shown in historic photographs, and the other to investigate the depositional stratigraphy in the back yard near several outbuildings.
