Day 1 of Test Pits

Posted on

Today the team from Ibex went out to Tel Burna to dig some test pits. Just to remind you all, test pits are a method of surveying, in order to gather information about a site, where instead of collecting artifacts from the surface, you excavate small random pits around the site, to a depth of 20 centimeters.  by sifting the material, you are able to collect a more diversified and well-balanced sample than surface collection.  here are some pics of the IBEX group at work.

Thanks to the group from IBEx and hope tomorrow is another great day!
