Article | Archeologist unearths remnants of 1777 battle

Mr. Silliman, of Georgia-based Terminus Archeological Research, conducted five days of systematic investigation at593 Main Street, a one-acre property with an empty 1950s house on it — and a recent approval for 16 units under the state’s affordable housing law, 8-30g.
