2015 Field Season Day 33

It's a wonderful example of worked bone, in this case a doll, collected from a deep sewer shaft discovered in Grid 47. How much fun are sewers? Fun enough that Ben Felker hopped in to do a little digging (as did a number of other visitors to the grid).

Sewers are interesting because broken things get tossed in and other things get lost in them. You never know what you might find when you excavate one.
