Start of Work Week 2

The weekend has come and gone, and now we are back to work in the trenches for our first full day, (meaning we all woke up at 5:30am and left the hill at 3:30pm). We continued to excavate the new area that we prepared on Saturday and go deeper into the dirt. This proved to be somewhat difficult because throughout the soil, there were rocks and roots holding everything in place. The rocks (we hope) have a greater significance than just being rocks, but the jury is still out on that one. We did this for most of the day and found several large pieces of terracotta in addition to a piece of glass that looked ancient-made (but again, we aren’t sure.) We got through most of the top soil by a little bit after lunch, and we started to level out the trench so that it aligned with the one from last year. This is something that we will continue tomorrow because we didn’t finish today. All in all, it was a good continuation of the dig, and the rest of the week should be just as exciting.
