  1. Just for a fleeting moment, I saw `inheritance` flashing before my eyes!! I`m from UK so not at all likely :) Have to say I can think of a little bit more useful activity than digging up the discarded trash in a rear garden site – why not research the Wakefield history instead? You may indeed discover the Yorkshire town where the `clan` all started. It`s quite amazing how the American influx grew so much that (you could haul me o`er the main sail) – the US navy commisioned a warship and named her USS Wakefield. It is no longer in commission. I have it on reliable authority from a member of the crew – yes, a member of the original crew, serving during the 2nd war – his name`s Al, that it eventually became lawn mower parts. So what indeed, I ask, may you find under the Wakefield soil could surprise you.
    You may also wish to research Al BTW, as he indeed has a connection with Boston University. His name is Al Murray. I believe you have a senior member of staff on the payroll at Boston. There, I`ve let all out of the bag now. :) I`ll probably get carpetted now by yon retired sailorboy.

    Take a look at the wildside – take a look at the website.

    You`ll find that the most valuable requisite in life is `Education for All`. It`s this (at present) seemingly impossible quest which will keep our planet calm & happy.

    Give everyone my best wishes,
    See ya.

  2. So exciting to see high school students being introduced to archaeology in this way. And to see 17-year-old John Pino make such an excellent case for the usefulness of digging in old trash pits. Kudos to Jenny Wildt and Sara Belkin and I hope they will continue share information about the items they found.
