Creating a polygon grid

Dear GIS community - I am helping an archeology grad student construct a polygon grid (say, 1mx1m) over a map of her area of excavation. She tells me that this is how archealogical excavations are actually made, by laying down a grid  and describing all items found within each cell - a sort of a spatial excel sheet. This database can be further split into different depth layers. I have been trying to figure out how to create such a grid using a starting point (which is at the North center of the grid in her case), and I've been unable to find any tool in ArcINFO 9.3 to do this... Would you have any suggestions, off the top of your head? Sincerely, Maria
