An Update on the Creekside Landing Archaeological Investigation:
The VDOT archeologists completed their preliminary excavation of the site in the wooded area off of the clubhouse trail behind Jib Court on July 12th. They determined that it was a domestic site that is tentatively dated to 1720 to 1770 based on the recovered artifacts. They identified three large features that include what is believed to be a pit feature associated with a house, a possible well feature or large trash pit, and a possible boundary ditch. They also discovered a nice collection of early to mid-eighteenth century artifacts from the domestic site. Recovered artifacts include pieces of ceramics including Staffordshire slipware, refined earthenwares with glazes, coarse earthenwares, white clay pipe stems, animal bones (cow, pig), and dark green bottle glass. The archeologists will now write a draft report of their findings and the information from the site will help VDOT as they continue to develop the I-64, Segment 3 project. Additional information will be provided to the community as received.
