Image of feature cluster in Area 4 looking northeast.
Feature cluster in Area 4 looking northeast. These were flagged as anomalies during machine stripping and then investigated by hand. They proved to be a group of burial pits mainly dating to the Early Historic period. This photo was taken part way through the investigations when the burial pits have been exposed down to the top of the light-colored shell/hash deposits. Subsequently, each pit was carefully excavated and documented. In the background is one of the boat canals that had been dredged out after archeologists had cleared the area. TARL Archives.
