Seminar Day

A good day all around.  The staff was up bright and early for work in Grid 32, the location of our salvage excavation on behalf of the Parks Authority, followed by a morning of working on various individual research projects.  

The volunteers enjoyed the luxury of sleeping in until 6:30 at which time they were able to enjoy a hotel breakfast -- a nice treat I must say.  They then walked out to the site, just a mile away, and attended a series of seminars on various aspects of the excavation.

Tomorrow we are back in the field digging.  I'll try to get a picture of all the excavation areas so everyone can see what a difference a week makes.
