RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Plans by archaeologists to conduct a field investigation at Capital Square in Raleigh have been postponed by bad weather.

Officials announced late Thursday morning that the work planned to run through Saturday is being delayed by expected rainy weather.

The square has been excavated in the past, but officials said ongoing research is needed to learn more about the ground’s buildings and inhabitants.

The work will be rescheduled. When it is, visitors are expected to be able to watch archaeological techniques, such as ground-penetrating radar. They’ll also be able to speak with investigators about the project.

The effort is to be carried out by the State Capitol in conjunction with the Office of State Archaeology, UNC-Greensboro archaeology and geography departments and a private cultural resource management firm.
