Today, 6-8-99, the crew started out by taking the excess dirt off of the black plastic sheeting that had been laid down over the squares that were completed last year.These squares were 10R160, 10R170, 10R180, and 10R190.  Then we actually started the initial excavations in a brand new square, 10R200.

After learning the proper way to label bags, we sifted through some of the soil and grass from our new square.


                                                                            Christopher holds the first potsherd that was found today.  After this one, he must have found at least twenty more.Denene found our first artifact of the season.This is a stone gaming disk.


After a hot morning we had gotten a lot done and decided to call it a day.

See you tomorrow!
