We just had our end-of-the-year archaeology party, and, as usual, it was a giant nerd fest. We divided the students into two armies, led by Alexander the Great/Lame (Jenny, our social chair) and Hannibal Barca the Awesome (yours truly, the president). We then performed a series of challenges, mainly games of skill, to determine which general and which army was truly superior. The evening culminated with a game of trowel races, a relay race in which we had to run around while balancing cups on our “trowels” (which were actually ladles, since we all forgot to bring our trowels. Whoops).
Naturally, because we are all so amazing, the armies tied. Hey, there’s enough glory to go around.
Overall, the party was a wonderful way to end what has been an incredibly successful and exciting year for Trojan archaeologists.
And now for pictures!
Congratulations, Trojan archaeologists, on a fantastic year!
