As I was going through the files on my camera, I came across some more photos from the excavations out at 34GT47.
Here's Lauren, our fearless leader, telling us the day's work plan. And that's Kristina, enacting said plan.
As you can see here, we were working in a very small area, limited by ODOT's right of way. The white string in the lower right corner marks the right of way line. The site actually extends far beyond the right of way, though.
The site is eroding out of the slope. Here, you can see the dark brown soil containing cultural deposits contrasted with the sterile red clay below it.
Another slope shot. It really sucked when equipment would roll down the slope.
I worked on a unit containing a deep pit. I could basically stand in it and barely see out of it.
Another pit shot, facing south instead of north this time.
