Our second day in the field went well. We dived into our "squares," though since most of us aren't actually excavating true squares, we really just dived into task forces. My group is working on cleaning up some squares that were excavated in previous years and taking down some baulk, which is the ground left between squares. Essentially, we are combining multiple squares into one large square by taking down the walls in between them. Other groups are working in the east side of the temple, one is in the west temple, and one is working on the temple steps and the south edge of the temple.
Tomorrow is Sunday, which means we don't excavate. However, we're not having the whole day off and we're going to start work on the other major project for this season: reorganizing and cataloging the artifacts. Nothing like some sorting to pass the time! I might get some Israeli chocolate milk (or Shoko) to help cope. It comes in a bag. Yum!
