TAS members Reba and Mitch Jones excavated Pits 1 and 2 located about 15 m away from Hank's house. The arrow points to Pit 1, the more obvious in this photo. These two pits were exposed in the creek cutbank and about half of each remained. Both were classic "bell-shaped" storage pits, and excavation revealed that Pit 1 was clean and probably still functioned as a storage pit when it was last used. In contrast, after Pit 2 was last used as a storage pit, it was backfilled with trash. These pits are probably associated with another house that may still be buried nearby. Photo by Doug Boyd.
