it must be the culture historian in me ...
that sees this picture and wants it to be a birds eye view from the southeast corner of our site. anyhow I just thought is was kind of trippy cause it sure does look as though it is a vista west and down hill. Check out the title at the bottom of the picture.
No, really what i want to talk about is the difference between digging a test pit with an auger and digging with a shovel. Perhaps it was the fact that we used the auger first thing in the morning when we were all (relatively) fresh and that we got to use the shovel method after lunch when the sun was higher and my post prandial mood had kicked in. Makes no never mind though, I really love what we are doing. I got my fingers crossed that I will find something cool like my classmates. So far i have hallucinated pieces of plaster and ancient seeds that will unlock the secret of old school agricultural folk ways at DSCQHR. I will have plenty of zip lock bags and a ton of mandarin oranges for you all saturday am. see you then. mark
