An Archaeological Synthesis of Wells in Delaware: Alternative Mitigation for the Polk Tenant Site

Authors:

Abstract and Figures

As part of an alternative mitigation project associated with the Polk Tenant archaeological site, Versar archaeologists and historians gathered information on 58 previously excavated wells from across Delaware. Data collected included the shape of wells that have been found, the methods and materials used to construct them, and where the wells occur relative to houses, barns or other structures. Versar also examined the methods archaeologists used to excavate these wells.
