We're back for our 12th season. Keep up to date with all the discoveries, brought to you by our daily bloggers.
And so, we get to the bittersweet end of
our dig. In fact, is our last day as second-year students, but as the weeks at
the dig site have progressed, the routine and the work has grown on us, and it
is with mixed filings I now have to end this year. I don’t know if I talk for
all of us, but I would say that I would miss this experience.
Most of the people that I have shared a
trench with this month I did not even know that well beforehand, and now the
only thing I wish for is that we could have gotten more time together before
the year ends.
But enough nostalgia, today me and Adam
were excavating a context filled with a lot of stones. It seems to align pretty
well with the wall in the neighbouring trench (just a little bit higher up).
So, who knows, there might be something interesting for next year's students to
find down there.
Apart from that, just as the title
suggests, the rest of the day pretty much rained away, and most of the
remaining time left to us went into recording and drawing the contexts. I don’t
even know what happened around me; it was all a blur before things had to be
tidied up and packed away.
