SD 2017 Day 7

After our day off on Sunday, yesterday’s digging was undertaken with renewed vigour. We had some really exciting finds coming from the archeodome! Sadly the motel internet couldn’t handle this excitement last night so I’m blogging from the Archeodome this morning – it’s tea break, I had a peanut butter doughnut, and life is good!

Our find of the day was this pottery sherd. It features the ‘weeping eye’ of Cahokia, but is made locally.
