The Soil Sausage Test
After being attacked by a downpour of rain our chance of finally starting to get some archaeology revealed was sadly shut down and so we had to retreat back to the cabin where we had a session on how to write out context sheets. We learned the main purpose of the context sheets and how to fill each part out in depth. With excavation being destruction, it was essential to learn how to preserve as much of the evidence as we could and context sheets are our main written form of to preserve this knowledge.
