Today is the 2014 Day of Archaeology.  If you have never heard of the Day of Archaeology, it is a day when archaeologists from all over the world post an entry on what they are doing that day. If you visit the web site, you can see submissions from as far away as Pompeii, Egypt, and Tanzania. Closer to home, you can see entries from Ferry Farm (George Washington's boyhood home), northern Virginia and Martinsville. The entry from VMNH describes a shell sample from a Native American village on the Potomac River.
