All around each one of us are the remains of earthen mounds that served as villages, trading posts and even capital cities of their time. Today you recognize them as the “Rolling Hills of Middleburg”, or those Huguenots and Revolutionary War era stone mansions on the hilltop with the winding stone walls of what they pass off as “field stone” from a period they understand little about. We hope to highlight these locations in a way to both educate and inspire other amateur archaeologist on the 15k+ year history of human habitation of Virginia and to start recognizing and recording these sites in their areas as well.
The site and contributing members are amateur archaeologist with a love of history and an eye for the not so obvious and for the most part not professional archaeologist. Please allow for the occasional incorrect identification, terminology, or classifications as again this site is to educate and inspire everyday amateurs to get out exploring and reporting and not a PHD program.
Professional archaeologist are always welcome to lend their minds and services to the group and Big Indian Run Archaeology is willing to share data points and collections to further additional research by those in the professional field.
All sites are privately owned property and all Federal and State statutes are adhered to with respects to artifact collection. Please do not publicly post coordinates of site locations to privately held property. All identified locations are to be within a general area of a few miles.
