Evidence of the Prehistoric Crew!

It may appear, to some faithful readers, that the relative silence of the prehistoric crew on this blog may indicate that we have gone into hibernation for the winter. Not so! Proof that we are still alive and digging out there in the woods is shown in photos from the last few weeks:
 This photo shows two bald eagles sitting on a branch. They are to the left of the big tree trunk, about half way up the photo. They appear to be two lumps in the center. We hear or see them almost every day!
 This photo depicts Kathleen Lowe and Jon Mayes excavating an MTU in mucky conditions.
 This is a possible feature noted intruding into subsoil. Found in one of our many MTUs along the border of the site. We are excited for full-scale excavation in the Spring!
Deep deposits have been noted…
Remember that the prehistoric crew takes volunteers on thursdays and fridays! We are a bit farther from the field office, but come in at lunch for a thaw and sandwiches just like the historic crew!
