In the Field—Fairfax, Virginia

We are archaeologists with the Fairfax County Park Authority. Today we are starting to lay out and dig test units outside a historic house. At first glance, the house looks 20th century. However, a closer look reveals an older stone chimney and s core constructed of log. This type of construction strongly suggests the original house dates to the early 19th.
