A Hard Day’s Labwork

As the 2013 season is drawing to a close, the S’Urachi team spent a relaxing morning at the beach and followed it up with a full afternoon of lab work and public presentation. Along with displaying our finds to local visitors and archaeologists, we also continued documenting our materials and organizing our data. Take a look below at some images from our lab work this afternoon!

Aside from ceramics, we also recovered many faunal bones this season. Below Damia Ramis and Nuri van Dommelen organize our faunal remains and discuss the different species we have uncovered, including fox, cow, dog, chicken, sheep, goat, tortoise, pig, horse and ass.
