Digging St. Louis

The French origins of St. Louis were again in the news this month, with the report that archaeologists have uneartherd some interesting remains under a highway overpass just south of the city's famed arch. They found traces of a post-and-earth house built c. 1769 as well as some artefacts including sherds of tin-glazed earthenware. NPR has the story here.
I say again in the news because of this and this. Good people of St. Louis, we salute you for keeping French colonial heritage alive!
