Try your hand (read: keyboard) at identifying a feature found at Grand-Pré. What could have caused the soil to look like this? Post your guesses below, and the correct answer and the name of the first correct guesser will be posted on Thursday of each week. (Note: competition not open to those on the crew!)

WHAT IS THE MYSTERY FEATURE SEEN IN THE PICTURE BELOW?
ANSWER: This feature was likely caused by a wooden post. The wood has long since decomposed but a stain remained, leaving this particular spot a different colour than the surrounding soil. Since we excavate according to the colour and consistency of the soil, our digging left this hole – so now we can reasonably surmise that there was a wooden post in this spot.
