It was our first full day on site today, and it was a beautiful day. We laid in some new excavation units (one of course, was under the backdirt pile from last year!). Our first goals for this field season are to uncover the north wall, join two partially excavated trenches in the south wall, and finally to figure out if the fill inside the eastern half of the structure is sterile and how the eastern wall was constructed.
We had several visitors, which was a great chance for some of our crew to talk about what we are doing with the public. We are very pleased with the day’s progress, and the site is coming alive again, it doesn’t look quite so forlorn. Here are some pictures from the day:
