It’s also of note that Kerry Grens, the author of the story was honored by the North Carolina Society of Historians with an award for this article this past October.

Anne Poole (at left), my partner and Research Director, are screening for artifacts in the photo at one of our excavation sites.  Anne and I seldom are actually able to do something together at the same time, as there are lots of logistics and challenges to work on every minute of every dig with 20-40 people in the field.  Please note that my t-shirt says “Well behaved women seldom make history.”  It’s my motto, and I’ve never been accused of being well behaved!

Thanks everyone for your participation and interest.  Let’s make 2013 a great year with lots of research and let’s find those colonists!!
