Update of Day of Archaeology

First off, I would like to thank the people behind the Day or Archaeology. It just goes to show you not only the diversity of archaeology itself, but the archaeologists themselves. I’m sure this event will grow each year.

I’m a little disappointed on the contributions by the archaeologists from the United States, especially those of us from Hawaii where it seems I was the only one logged in to this event. I’m most certainly not the model representative for Hawaiian archaeology, not by a long shot.

Anyway to sum up last Friday, it’s a damn good feeling finishing up a report which is basically the product – what the client and the public pays me and my company for doing. After the fieldwork, many of these sites are no longer there, or no accessibility since you can’t leave and open excavation open indefinitely. You best get the report right as best as you can, because it may be the final say.

Once again a big Mahalo for all your efforts

Aloha nui loa,


Finished Draft of Wailua Report

Well, just finished the monitoring report for Wailua, and I’m ready to do some TGIFing.

“It’s Aloha Friday don’t work till Monday…”

Actually Tuesday, I’m doing a three day weekend and hit the beach.

Yeah, life sometimes rough being a shovelbum but somebody got to do it.



Greetings From Hawaii, Wish you were here!

Aloha you all,

I’m in.

Got myself located down to  +/-  5  meters.

Now to get some King Cobra Laulau for breakfast.

Hard to predict what I’ll be doing next Friday, but it will probably be on O’ahu – either a monitoring gig or more write up reports for the Wailua Bridge project on Kaua’i. What I know for sure is that there will always be pau hana drinks after work (Tgif, damn straight!).
