So I know ZIP about this but I was wondering how far one would probably have to dig to find things around the 1600's? Would you have to dig 1,2, 3 or 12 feet? How do you go about finding a spot etc. Why you ask? Well I found that this lady that lives less then a mile from me her farm has been excavated and found a possible location to Chief Powhatan actual place he lived. I figured why not look while I'm out doing some of my yard work. I mean my house is in a primo spot if I was an Indian and required a place for safety, food, and water.Then again, probably I should just leave it alone but I often wondered about my land.
