Student Blog — Notes from Mel

Here’s a dispatch from Mel, where she shares some of her finds and observations from today’s work — Kate

Exciting progress today! Watching the well emerging stone by stone is fascinating, as was witnessing live obsidian knapping. As architecture is located and artifacts are being recorded and mapped out, a clearer picture of the site is emerging.

Learning to level a theodolite and total station takes time and skill,  but the information they provide are very useful. Beautiful weather today. I was chuffed to find a ceramic button, piece of a pipe stem and some thick, dark glass.
