The afternoons are just as busy as the mornings. Instead of digging, however, we process pottery, archaeobotany samples, registered MCs and more.
The afternoon is also one of the busiest times of the day for two of our teams. Melissa, our dig photographer, works on photographing not only objects in the field but also objects to be used in publication projects. Much of that work happens during pottery washing.
The GIS team, George, Jeff, Trent and Ben, is equally busy mapping all the day's finds as they prepare top plans for each square. Can't dig without a plan and they do a great job of updating them daily.
