It is almost the end of our field season. Tomorrow we will complete and fill in the last of our units. We will return the site to as close to its original condition as we can. I know tomorrow is going to be a long day!
It is hard to sum up the six weeks, weeks which went by so fast…. Also, we know there is so much to do in the lab (we will continue to blog about this). Throughout the last six weeks though, we can say there were: Some fantastic artifacts we found. Some fantastic discoveries we made. Some fantastic moments when we could tell the students were suddenly grasping the methods. Some fantastic moments when we realized we might be completely wrong, and others when we realized we were completely right. Some fantastic meals. Some fantastic visits when visitors shared some fantastic things.
For now, here are a few portraits of the folks on the site from our last couple of days:
