Today we prepared the site for excavation. We began by removing the geotextiles that properly stored the area as well as cleared the site of surrounding vegetation. We then learned how to use the trowels to remove the site of covering dirt and dust. We went through this process twice, resulting in the exposure of stone and even pieces of pottery. We later helped group 6000B with removing geotextiles after finding a damp spot underneath that housed green grasses, white mold, and even a frog!
