Field school Experience:

I attended field school through the Warren Wilson College’s field school program, taught by Dr. David Moore. The North Carolina Berry site is a 16th century Mississippian Native American village called Joara that was occupied by the Spanish explorer Juan Pardo. In 1567, Pardo built Fort San Juan, which was burned down 18 months later during the spring of 1568 by the Joara neighbors. As part of my field school experience, I excavated a unit that was outside of the fort and believed to be Spanish living quarters in the style of the Native American houses in the area. There were several features which included; two hearths, and several postholes which seemed to indicate the orientation of the walls.
