Day 11 (July 6, 2011): Lifts at BOK-2 and Site 15
July 6, 2011
Remember the last lift from BOK-2 (Day 7), where we lifted 135 artifacts? Well, it was only a few days until the excavation floor was covered with artifacts again! When the excavated artifacts accumulate to a point where it hinders our digging, we must lift again. Today that’s exactly what our team did at BOK-2. Katie and Alison spent the morning taking pictures of each square, mapping the locations of artifacts, and writing labels on over 100 bags. Each individual artifact or bone will be placed in a bag, given an identification number, and archived at the National Museum in Nairobi.
