They’re talking about moving Fort Nashborough. And, in such discussions, they say:
It’s unknown if the current location is historically accurate. The original fort may have been 50 yards closer to where the courthouse is currently located. The historic records are not clear, said Owens.
But it sure seems like archaeologists could help give a good guess. Plus, it would be helpful if we could know any creeks that used to be downtown. We’d need a sense of where they were getting their fresh water from. It makes sense that the fort would have been closer to where the courthouse is, if only because the courthouse is on much higher ground than Fort Nashborough. But it seems like we could unleash a horde of archaeologists to dig along the river and help us better know. Those people had to shit somewhere and that has to leave a trail.
Find the outhouse, find the fort!
Why, yes, I am available to make slogans for archaeology t-shirts, why do you ask?
