Today was the first actual day of excavation and the group I was in made a 4×4 grid at the bottom of a mound approximately 30x20m and about 18m tall. We have found 1 or 2 looting pits around the site but we’re the first archaeologists to actually dig at the site so we don’t really know what we’re gonna find. We don’t even know when the site was built! Hopefully by the end of the 5 weeks we’ll actually be able to answer some questions about it. And hopefully none of the giant spiders kill me before then! 😉 Actual digging starts tomorrow and I’m crossing my fingers we’ll know more soon.
