1. This photo shows a pit excavated during the archeological investigations. The rows of rocks represent the foundation of a house or other structure. How do you think you would go about finding out what kind of structure it was originally?

2. The foundation was found in Lot 7 of Block 3. Referring back to Drawing 1, how does this location relate to the main streets of town?

3. Artifacts recovered in this location include pieces of dishes used for food. How do you think this information might help in identifying what kind of building was located here?
