The First Few Days . . .

Laura:  After getting started the first thing that was done was surveying the areas of which we were to dig. You’re probably thinking that it mostly involved surveying equipment and that it is relatively an easy thing to do. It’s a bit opposite, for at least the students.  Most of the first day was spent with us crawling on our hands and knees searching for artifacts on the surface. Then we continued to use the surveying equipment to set some points in to where we were going to dig. After the flags were in place, we created precise 2x2 meter square units to start digging in. The second day consisted of taking off the sod level with our shovels and trowels. Even just under the grass some units started to find artifacts. The excitement is just beginning!
