Day one - muscle ache

Daniel M. describes his first day on site:

The first day on the dig was brilliant. A great first day! The dirty-looking rain clouds moved away and we stayed dry the entire time - some of the students even cracking out the sun-cream.

The main job for the day was to carefully remove the remaining soil on top of the cover over the area of excavation. This had to be done without damage to the cover, which obviously didn't happen. (Meggen's note - its only plastic...)

The soil was then dumped on top of what is now a huge mound of mud. It got so big we had to create a path which circles around its ascent. When extending the path I found the biggest sherd of pottery of the day! Muscles definitely aching and can't wait for my lie-in tomorrow morning.

  1. Oops! Jack Cruz left a nice comment about all the hard work being done (on May 9th), but the clumsy fingers of the blog administrator accidentally deleted it! Our apologies Jack and we hope you keep following us!

  2. How sad :(..Just keep up the good work on your team.
