Art and mud

July 12, 2018

Today an abundance of nice finds, jewelry


Bangle from an ivory earring found in T-block. It is decorated on all four sides with the eye of awareness.

and artwork came out of the T-block (the latest house on the high ground), whilst from the old trench came mainly muck. The central room of the oldest house is the lowest part of the site, so with the constant drizzle of the last few days it is resembling a small swimming pool. Unfortunately our limited time digging does not allow us the luxury of leaving this part of the site be until the weather improves, so we have to do our best, bailing and scraping muck…

T-block is high up and dry in comparison, so Sierra Club is working on comparable comfort 😉 The weather report promises better weather tomorrow, so with some luck the site will dry a bit.

    Beautiful ivory bangle. Does one pre-qualify for digging if they played in the mud as kids? Probably not, but couldn’t resist the humor. Looks like hard work for all battling the weather as well. Hope it clears up soon. Great getting updates of your progress. Thanks!
