Assistant Director Adam Aja has arrived and things are moving into high gear. We finished clearing the overburden from the new excavation areas today which means minimal clearing for Grids 20 and 16 before they'll be able to start digging.
Dr. Kate Birney, supervisor of Grid 51, has inspected it and tells me that there'll be a few days of cleaning to do but that they too should be excavating mid-late week.
Our registrar, Megan Gegner is here getting the pottery compound organized and ready for Sunday morning.
Lots of staff members and even some early volunteer arrivals today. Hard to believe two weeks (almost) have already passed and the season is about to start. Can't wait to see what we'll learn this season.
