Tomorrow the excavation of the test trenches begins in earnest. We are all very excited about this. It has been a long haul of surveying to get to this point.
We will be excavating two test trenches. Following are photos of what the test trench sites looked like during clearing in preparation for excavation.
In coming days I will be able to show you some of the work of the excavation. However excavated artefacts may only be shown if we receive approval from the authorities to show them (or if they have been previously published).
If we are not able to arrange permission to show you artefacts that are excavated in coming days, I will still try to convey the spirit of the excavation and the process of the work.
Meanwhile, here are photos of the test trench sites before and during clearing.
