Subject:Archaeology! Once again, in New Orleans
Time:09:47 am
This message was forwareded to me by our very own Archaeology firm in New Orleans, Earth Search Inc. (ESI)
I hope to see some of you out there!!!

Hello all!

Volunteers are invited to participate in
archaeological excavations at Oak Alley Plantation,
St. James Parish, Louisiana, on Friday, August 12th
and Saturday, August 13th.

Earlier this summer, archaeologists from ESI excavated
the footings of the garconnieres at Oak Alley
Plantation, finding well-preserved deposits associated
with portions of these structures. Our investigations
allowed us to make some preliminary conclusions about
the construction, design, and possible functions of
the buildings. Now, the Oak Alley Foundation has
requested that we conduct additional work designed to
give us further information about the use and
chronology of the buildings.

This is a unique opportunity to do archaeology at one
of Louisiana’s most famous and scenic antebellum
plantation sites. Volunteers will assist in screening
soil from excavation units and may help clear dirt
from one garconniere’s interior floor. It will be
HOT, so if you decide to volunteer, be prepared.

If you are interested, please call (Office:
504-947-0737) or e-mail me (dryangray@yahoo.com) as
soon as possible, and I will provide additional
information. If transportation is a problem for you,
it is possible that we may have a carpool leaving from
our office in New Orleans on Saturday morning.

Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing
from you soon!

Well, I usually get these notices far in advance. I have to admit that I did in fact get this notice a few weeks ago. Due to work, school, et cetera, I have been unable to post this particular dig far in advance. I have however posted a number of other archaeological opportunities that few people showed up for or responded to. So, I have been pretty lax about posting these types of things. However, if you are interested in further opportunities, just let me know and I will be sure to include your personal address when I forward these types of opportunites directly to you.

Best, Carlos
