Digging again

While visiting the Portland Museum in Louisville the guide said that she is an archaeologist and talked about digging slave quarter sites in Kentucky. In a conversation she told me about the Kentucky Archaeological Survey about to dig on the new construction site at the Louisville Omni Hotel. She gave me the email address of the director of the dig and I have been accepted. They have found three 19th century privies that they will dig up and sift. Since people use to throw all kinds of things down a privy we may well find a lot of interesting stuff. I will likely be doing a lot of sifting and sorting the objects found. It will be great to once again be digging even if it is not Petra or Israel.
