    I liked the inclusion of the archaeological report from Colonial Williamsburg. The reports indicates that the temple was originally a gift shop and not a candy shop as was reported in the newspaper article. The mis-reporting demonstrates how local histories can easily be distorted.

    How will you work to avoid duplicating the research that was conducted for the previous WDP projects that you cite in your bibliography? And how has the secondary literature on sacred spaces informed how you will approach the study of this particular sacred space in Williamsburg?
