2011 Day 5: Nearing the End

Today, we opened some more units and dug deeper in others with the hope of distinguishing the areas that were previously excavated in 1959/69 from areas that were not.  We have definitely located one of those spots, but the cellars have yet to reveal themselves.

The yellow soil in the far unit is untouched, sterile subsoil, and therefore the bottom of the unit.

Derek and Michael map a profile of this unit's sidewall.

The massive backdirt pile that has accumulated this year.  Tomorrow we throw it all back in.

Tomorrow we will continue to excavate in the morning before we backfill.  Its amazing how quickly the week has flown by.  However, due to the hard work of all the volunteers, we were able to accomplish quite a bit in just a few days.
