    I like your combination of general secondary sources on gated communities and specific reports related to Kingsmill, including previous WDP projects. Perhaps these projects will provide the names of people with whom you might be able to conduct follow-up interviews.

    I see that you still have several of the archaeological studies of Kingsmill on your bibliography. How do you plan to use this information about the very early history of the area in your research about the current gated community?
