Episode 10 of the Said Differently podcast is now available wherever you get your podcasts.
There are a variety of challenges involved with building projects on undeveloped land – but uncovering historical artifacts or cultural finds might not be among the challenges that first come to mind. For two of our project teams building on such land, the potential for an archaeological discovery became real very quickly.
In this episode of Said Differently, we head out to the in-progress Scotford Solar Project in Alberta, Canada, where various cultural artifacts were discovered during the excavation stage of the project. Arrowheads, bone deposits, tooth fragments, and more were all recovered from the site. We chat with Project Manager Mike Jeske of Alltrade, a Barton Malow Company, about the discovery and how it impacted the project.
Later in the episode, we revisit the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) Davis Hall project with Project Manager Jim Droski. The project location in Gloucester Point, Virginia, situated on the York River across Yorktown, delivered some interesting Revolutionary and Civil War artifacts during land clearing and excavation.
