This blog is about how, why and where to find old paths, trails, and roads in Virginia and the Carolinas. The short version is that one finds these old traces so as to identify archaeologically sensitive ground. You may be surprised to learn just how much remains of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. Through this blog we hope to engage your imagination and perhaps even your hands in the largest recovery project ever attempted in North America.
