Dig, Days 16 and 17. All done. Friday we finished excavation and I dealt with reporters, made the news again. The reporters all note that I speak in good sound bites.

A few nice artifacts found on the last day.

Another Hohokam pottery sherd.

Otherwise spent the afternoon mapping.

See Day 1 for a photo of this room before excavation.

Led tours of the site yesterday and today- about 130 visitors. So now the work shifts to the laboratory where we will eventually analyze artifacts and write a report. Some of the nicer artifacts will end up in museum exhibits.

I'm returning to normal. After a catch-up nap I have gotten by lazy self up and I am cleaning house. Where did all of that dirt come from? Maybe I should screen it and see whether any interesting artifacts appear...
