Artefact of the day 11/8
The artefact of the day was initially found by Ana, days ago before she left, but excavated by Rick today – we have been waiting to go down into the house floor, but now we’re finally at that stage. It is a wooden bowl – complete – and with a high bent wood rim. We have a few wooden vessels from the site, but this is one of the most beautiful ones. Whole vessels are exciting for more then one reason, when upside down like this they create a little closed context, and by analyzing the soil hidden underneath it we might find out what was kept in the bowl. The whole present day dirt-content is therefore sampled so it can be processed in the lab.
