The White Springs Project was initiated by researchers from Cornell University and Ithaca College in 2007 to examine the local consequences of turbulent times, particularly the impact of warfare and challenging political-economic conditions on community structure, house forms, and material practices at the site. Fieldwork has consisted of excavation, surface collection, and a multi-instrument, high-resolution archaeogeophysical survey of an areaof over 5 hectares.
