It's hard to imagine what archaeology is really like until you do it. Hard, physical labor? Yes. One of the most fun, challenging, amazing things you will ever do? Yes. An opportunity to surprise yourself and your friends and family? Most definitely yes.
After just a week of excavation, each of our areas has made a great deal of progress and everyone is digging.
This is one of our rare two day weekends. Tomorrow is another day to rest and relax. Sunday we return to the field.
