Dr. Murray recently acquired funding from NC State for his grant entitled “Water Use in Rural Southern Burgundy: Ethnographic Contributions to an Interdisciplinary Analysis” which will allow him to conduct summer fieldwork to continue his oral history/ethnographic research. We look forward to the new information his fieldwork will supply and give thanks to NC State University for providing funding.

Our report on our field research for 2013 funded by Dumbarton Oaks is now online, you can read it here. Thanks again to Dumbarton Oaks for providing the necessary funding for a successful two weeks of research in France.
We recently spent two weeks in Burgundy, France conducting research courtesy of a Dumbarton Oaks Project grant (many thanks to Dumbarton Oaks for providing support). While there, we visited the Macon archive and took over 4,000 pictures of documents, including a new historic map which will be added to our GIS. We also documented several historic mill sites and interviewed their owners. More details of the fieldwork will be posted soon on the Dumbarton Oaks website.
