Well, we just completed the last day of work. Tomorrow we are cleaning the house and getting all our stuff together and then we start driving for the airport at 2am! I had a 12 hour work day today from 5-5 and I have to say, I'm beat! Its been a great time here, but I am really looking forward to coming home. Thanks to everyone for stopping by here and leaving comments and taking such an interest in what I did here! I can't wait to see you all!

Click here to see an amazing panorama taken of the unit my partner and I dug. It was a really important unit because we basically found a farm from before 1000, making it one of the oldest in the area!

Horses by the side of the road on the way back from the ride yesterday.

I realize its been a while since I posted- we've been really busy here! Today I spent most of the day delicately excavating an 1000 year old pile of horse bones. I had a dental pick, a set of brushes and my trowel- I felt like the kind of archaeologist you see in National Geographic! The other part of the day I spent recklessly shoveling dirt in different piles so I made up for it. Its been an amazing experience here this past month, but I can definitely say that I'm ready to come home soon. I miss everyone so much! I am planning on going horseback riding (again!) tomorrow hopefully with some others, so I will put up pictures after that.
