Our goal was to document the spatial distribution of up to 3000 archaeological features that belong to the prehistoric (pre-AD1500), Colonial (AD1500-1800) and Post-Colonial periods (AD1800-1900).

We made substantial progress: approximately 30% of the area was covered and we recorded a variety of cultural features that included cairns, walls, terraces, houses, and wells.
