Week 1 of 2015 season is done!

Well, we made it through Week 1, despite having rain almost every day. Shawn and his crew were busy clearing the epicentre in order to start topographic mapping, and the map is already looking impressive! Out in the settlement, our crew finished surveying an entire property block (a big one), locating many additional pre-Columbian mounds along with the remains of the old banana plantation barracks. We also located some new granite sources, which made Tawny very happy, and collected some clay samples for our ceramic sourcing study. Next week, we will continue with the settlement survey and epicentre mapping, as well as visit some possible quarry locations on the property. Cheers from Belize! Meaghan IMGP5696 copy
