Since I don't do the digging, my job is watching (hey, it can be quite exhausting). The first couple of days had a lot of chatter and the energy of starting the dig. Today things were more quiet, not that there wasn't a lot going on, au contraire. Watching the team today you saw a lot of thought and analysis going on. That mystery item is still unknown. Hearth? Well-stone? Canal rubble? The students put in hours of painstaking time slowly uncovering each millimeter of dirt.
The story of Lowell's Irish is an unfinished jigsaw puzzle. Each day new pieces are being uncovered, and need to find their place in the big puzzle.
I will attempt to add a video clip. I have no idea what I'm doing. You might have to turn your whole monitor to see it- sorry about that.
