Hardworking Elves

July 24, 2019

Sorry for being out of touch for the past few weeks – a combination of no wifi and being busy in the lab has limited our ability to update the blog! I arrived in Quinhagak on July 1st, and since then we have mostly been doing lab work, with Jonathan surveying (he will give an update on that!) In the lab this summer we’ve been cataloguing the artifacts, meaning we are giving every artifact (from 2017 and 2018 field seasons) an individual number that Rick will then enter into the computer along with its specific provenience information. By the end of last week, we finished labelling the wooden artifacts, which totalled 16,400. Our average per day was 1,093 artifacts. Now we have also gone through the bone and have begun cataloguing the lithics.

Every day in the lab we each catalogue around 200-300 artifacts
