“Eventful” is an overused but accurate word for a week of excavation. Weeds, stones, and soil have yielded to a coin, a pendant, walls, a staircase, column drums, and other mysteries yet to be identified fully.
In all areas we are on or ahead of schedule. We will be opening two new squares (A2 and B5) in the next week.
The team is excellent . . . hard working and fun with new friendships fast forming. The returning veterans are the glue holding the project together, putting in many hours in the lab and well as providing leadership in the field.
For these good people and their good work, I am thankful.
