ST. THOMAS - The excavation of a major archaeological find discovered in the course of the Rothschild Francis Market Square construction project has been pushed back until after the St. Thomas Carnival, March 31 to April 27.
However, delays in securing federal funding are as much to blame as consideration for festival revelers.
In late January, a 200-foot trench on Krondprindsens Gade between Strand and General gades revealed the presence of a midden, or prehistoric food waste dumping site.
