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,
