Tyrone Dig - Day 3
Teachers recognize that they are always students. I’ve learned so much every day from this team, not just lessons in archaeology or history, but in working with a team, supporting each other, and listening to another’s viewpoint..
We got to the site early today anxious to get back to the trenches. None of the pits has revealed anything wonderful or mysterious, but there are finds typical of a farmhouse of this period. Today Stuart’s pit got 2 clay pipe stems.
Rain- here in N. Ireland, it’s just par for the course. Twice today we had torrents of rain for about an hour. The pits filled in meaning they had to be emptied by hand- twice. You can see the look of depression on Demetrios’ face and Dermot bailing water.
