Old Mobile (1MB94) Structure 30, Mobile County, Alabama.
Excavation of Structure 30 at the Old Mobile site (1MB94) occurred between 1992 and 1996, with field school student assistance. This two-room building was constructed in the pieux-en-terre style with subsurface wall and fence trenches preserved below plowzone. Relative artifact quantities in the trench features indicate a construction sequence, with the building constructed first, followed some time afterward by erection of a palisade-type fence enclosing the building. The associated artifact assemblage suggests use as a soldiers' barracks, followed by use as a storehouse (secured by the fence). An adjacent pit was dug for building material, presumably needed for a mud and stick chimney, and later used for refuse disposal.
