As per usual, I discovered that we really should read two more units of pottery before we depart Polis this summer. This has thrown the PKAP-Polis Project into overdrive because these levels fill about 15-20 trays of pottery. Scott reads about a tray an hour, so we’re looking at a couple of long days in the storeroom. At least Scott is keeping up a brave face.
But before we get down to business, we have a day off. Scott Moore and Brandon Olson are on their way to Nicosia for some work at CAARI and I’m going to prepare a short talk for the North Dakota Humanities Council this evening on the North Dakota Man Camp Project and do some GIS work.
I will also provide my loyal and engaged readers with a little swarm of quick hits and varia.
