Chelsea Morris- August 3rd; Pigeon Cove

We are back from another successful week in the lab and a very enjoyable day out to the site on Friday, August 3rd. Myself and Kellie headed out to the dig site on Friday, after being up to our eyes in artifacts at the lab. This week we received a large variety of artifacts that were very interesting not only to us but also to the public. This week we had quite a few people coming into the lab to look at the artifacts that had been brought in. A lot of people were quite interested in the full soapstone oil lamp, or the miniature soapstone oil lamp or even a pendant. There has been a lot of interest in the artifacts this year, and we try to explain to everyone what we know about the site as best we can.
On Friday we headed out early in the morning for a beautiful day at the site. We got right to work at our own unit once we arrived. The weather was beautiful with the sun shining and a slight breeze coming off the water. By lunch time the wind had died down, and it was very hot. Lisa and the crew still haven’t found the entrance passage exactly and it is interesting for each new unit to be opened up, hoping to find it. Our unit was pretty mild. The ground was a lot better to deal with as well as the sod. We found a bit of bone, soapstone, and Kellie found a bead ! It was a good day. We finished up early that day because Lisa and the crew were coming into town for the weekend. Overall it was a great experience once again ! :)
