The next few days were extremely hot and humid. Another yurt came up, borrowed from the Fortress of Louisbourg, and even in the short time it took to set that up in 33 degrees of humid weather, we felt like we’d been steamed. But the final product was lovely, and our tent city grew by another bound.
We cleaned up the unit from 2008 a little bit. The unit had been covered but not backfilled, so the walls had slumped a little bit, and a fresh soil scrape gives us a clear idea of what the feature is and what we’re looking at.
Rob and I turned our attention to the new unit, and once we had the corner stakes in, we set about cutting off the sod.
The sod off, the excavation unit was prepped for photography with a bit of trowelling.
So it’s prepared. What do you think we found in this area? What’s causing the high readings? We’ll find out shortly!
