We’re up and running, and therefore have little time to attend to the blog or emails.
I’ll try to post some photos as time permits but here’s a few for now…
With the relatively large number of students and volunteers we have undertaken two separate, but related projects. Some are fortunate enough to work in the shade much of the time as seen above.
The majority of the crew are back in Isequilla’s pit that we re-opened in 2009, working on the northeast profile.
The Southbank bonebed excavation is being expanded by about six square meters. Some are finding that the bonebed is a difficult, and confining space, but it has it’s rewards.
At lunch there almost always an opportunity to pick up a spear thrower, and get in touch with our prehistoric hunter ancestors.
After a year of sandstorms, some of the deepest excavations need to be shoveled out.
Luckily, there’s enough bone, lithics, and interesting sediment changes to keep us all interested and busy most of the time.
