Today the Wittenberg University’s “Archaeological Field Methods” class was visited by some students from Nightengale Montessori. They came to help observe what we are doing and to participate. They helped sort finds, scrape soil, and screen the collections. We appreciated their help and wonderful enthusiasm!
The students also knew about stratigraphy, how older items are often in lower strata, and that when you dig a pit that you disturb the dating of the materials within the layers!
