The second week of the excavation has gone by real fast. We found more bronze, iron, and pottery. In addition, we found a lot of bones, mostly of cattle. The digging gets harder and harder the deeper we dig. I've never worked so hard in my life but I'm loving every minute of it and I know I made the right decision when I signed up for a degree in archaeology a year ago.
Today I'm gonna relax and be lazy all day long because I feel every muscle in my body and every bone in my hands. Next week would've been my last regular week but I decided to continue digging for another week. In that fourth week, I'll be a regular worker already, so they're paying 30 Euros per day, which sounds good to me.
Have a nice weekend!
