On Saturday, November 6, 2011, I had the opportunity to excavate artifacts at a archaeology site, Falling Green Farm (Olney, Maryland). The excavation was for my class, AN105HM.
Sorry, I did not discover gold, diamonds, or any other valuable natural resouces , but if, in the future, I happen to make some profound discovery, I will be sure to split the money with YOU!
I had an excellent time, however, participating in the excavation and documentation. My group members and I, had to classify the color of the soil based on the Munsell Soil Color Chart. In addition, we examined our artifacts (coal, brick, glass, and pottery) closely, and then we put them in a brown bag that we labeled with the site number, our names, and other important information.
The best part about the archaeological experience, I would have to say, was interacting with my group members. My group members were diligent, cooperative, energetic, and comical.
On Thursday, November 10, 2011, I have to turn in an archaelogy site report. The report will include site information, methods and techniques, interpretations, and a one-page paper relating provided census data to the artifacts discovered.
Thank you for reading my latest blog entry. I hope that you an excellent week.
Peace and blessings,
