The second of three field seasons supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities took place during the month of June 1996. My colleagues and I express our ongoing gratitude to the Endowment for its support.

Additional support for the 1996 season was provided by the WSA Architecture and Development, Charlottesville, VA (a gift in kind) and by several private contributors: R. Victor Bernstein, Vera A. Carver, Roderick H. Cushman, Laura L. Fox, Gilbert and Judy Shelton.
