Our well

It occured to me that I haven't really mentioned much about what we're doing out in the field here at the site of ancient Corinth.

I'm in the Blue team, and our trench has a well in it. We've been excavating the well for several days now, and currently we're at a level about 8 meters deep. The amount of bone material and pottery coming out of it is a bit staggering. The best part, though, is going down to the bottom.

Because it's so deep, we've had to set up a platform and winch to both lower people down and haul dirt out.

Alicia Carter, the field supervisor, heads down into the deep, dark hole.
