Brockington Archaeologists "Crossing Boundaries Along the Cumberland"

By Inna Moore, Dave Baluha, and Niki Mills

Southeastern Archaeological Conference

Brockington and Associates recently teamed with the Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and the Tennessee Division of Archaeology (TDOA) to assess the White’s Creek Site in Davidson County, Tennessee, during the 2012 MTSU field school. Jointly funded by TDOA, Brockington, MTSU, the Tennessee Historical Commission, and an award from the National Science Foundation, this project helps further MTSU’s and TDOA’s broader goal of identifying and assessing shell-bearing sites in the Middle Cumberland River Valley. 

Field work for the project included bucket augering, test unit excavation, column sample collection, and a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey. The GPR survey was completed courtesy of Brockington archaeologists. Project participants were pleased to present preliminary field work results during a poster session at the 2012 Southeastern Archaeological Conference (SEAC) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
