The Discovery, Excavation and Analysis of a 3000 Year Sequence of Colonial, Late Woodland and Deeply Buried, 1,700 B.C. Transitional Period "Broadspear" Living Surfaces at the Little Wood Creek Site, on the Hudson River at Fort Edward, New York - 1986-87 (Grossman et al. 1990)
Wide-area exposure of 400,000sq. ft. Late Woodland surface which exposed  ca. 1,100 Pits, features and human burials across a buried, 2-3 feet deep, Late Woodland village surface.  The ca 13th-14 century early Iroquois village.
Discovery of the
Late Woodland Pottery documenting the probable presence of early Iriquois occupations along the Hudson River, further to the East in upstate New York than anthropologists and historians, but not by members of the Iriquois Six Nations, had previously believed.
Agnastos Agelarakis, a forensic archaeoloist, of Grossman & Associates, working with the Ondandaga Chief Leon Shenandoah working under protective cover to respectfully expose, document and rebury (under Native American Spiritual supervision) the human remains found in the construction area for the last federally funded water treatment plant on the upper Hudson, 1987 at Fort Edward, New York
Discovery of 3000 year old Transitional Period roasting hearth at a depth of 5 feet below the Late Woodland Period village surface, Fort Edward, New York
Profile section of Hudson River shorline sediments covering 3000 year old Transitional Period roasting hearth at  5 ft. below more recent 13th century Late Woodland Period surface (@ 2-3 ft. below then modern grade), Fort Edward, New York
Wide-area exposure of deeply buried 3000 year old Transitional Period living surface, designated as Deep Cut-A, at the Washington County Sewer Plant construction site in 1987, Fort Edward, New York.
Close-up of Deep Cut A wide-area excavation of buried Transitional Period living surface which exposed a number of cooking hearths, stone tool making, food processing and colorful iron oxide ochre processing areas in association with 80,000 undisturbed chipped stone tools and Broad Spear projectile points at a depth of ca. 8 ft. below the then-modern grade.
Transitional Period Perkiomen Broadspear point dating to 3000 B.P from the undisturbed living floor of Deep-cut A.
Transitional Period Fish-Tail point found in association with the 3000 year old Broadspear points, hearths, chipping stations and activity areas in Deep Cut A at the Little Wook Creek Site, Fort Edward, New York.
Early computer-rendered color-coded artifact density-distribution plot developed by Dr. Grossman in 1988 with terrain modeling software to reconstruct distinct activity areas across the deeply buried Transitional Period (3000 B.P.) living surface found in Deep Cut A at the Little Wood Creek Site, Fort Edward, NY.  All of the 80,000 excavated artifacts and tool remains were mapped with a computer transit, georeferenced to real world coordinates, quantified and computer inventoried by provenience, material and function - during the excavation, instead of long after it was too late to make any changes in field tactics (Grossman 1990).
