Excerpt from Weekly Class Journal:

Week 9: 11/12/07
First day in the lab! Working in the lab was very different from digging in the field: we didn't get dirty, we were warmer, and we had light the whole time! We worked pretty efficiently today, washing all of the artifacts we had found over the last eight weeks. I enjoyed seeing some of the artifacts that I had not uncovered and also being reminded of the ones I had found but about which I had already forgotten. Lab work also gave me time to think about my project -- faunal remains. Hmmm...maybe I'll have something to post about that this week
