"In November 1990, the Archeology Branch of the Cultural Resources Center (CRC), National Park Service (NPS) was contacted to assess an eroding feature at Coast Guard Beach within the Cape Cod National Seashore. The feature was determined to be undisturbed and of Native origin. Additional exploratory excavation was recommended and revealed a deeply buried ground surface and the likelihood of additional significant deposits. Over the next 16 months, 5 episodes of fieldwork were conducted on portions of the Carns site exposing more than 300 square meters of site area." (Carns Site Report)
