Description: 

This clay-pit is in "the middle of [Pritchel's] farm" (119). The clay is "malleable" and embedded in it are Native American artifacts that once attracted "a party of archaeologists from the State University," but it becomes an important element in the story when it attracts a group of business men looking to "manufacture some kind of road material out of the clay" (119).
