The weather was not on our side- 03 JUNE 09

We had great plans for the second day in the field! We were lucky enough to provide an orientation on equipment and methodology before we encountered bad weather. The students learned about all of the equipment and maintenance including sharpening tools and changing mesh in the shaker screens.

We conducted a mock shovel test to demostrate the process involved with archaeological survey. The round shovel test reached a depth of 1 meter right as the rain began to fall. A downpour ensued, causing a mad dash to the outdoor museum pavillion for cover. If only it looked this sunny and nice that day!

We waited out the rain for about an hour before we finally retreated to the UWF campus. We spent the rest of the afternoon at the Archaeology Institute, which served as a safe haven from the rain!
