Working out in the open

Hey folks! Sorry for the late blog today--we were out in the field working on another project and there was some confusion as to who was responsible for the blog!

As such, while I do not have any pictures, an interesting artifact we have been finding is turtle carapace. Quite a few pieces of this inner structure of a turtle shell have come from the units excavated in the Swann many, that this likely was not a wondering turtle or two that happened to die in this area. Rather, from the looks of it someone was enjoying some turtle soup! We have sent photos of the carapace to the great Dr. Biesaw, who hopefully will be able to give us a full identification of the species. I will be sure to let you all know what she has to say.

Have a great weekend!
