These Are The World's Oldest Pants

Two men whose remains were recently excavated from tombs in western China put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us. But these nomadic herders did so between 3,300 and 3,000 years ago, making their trousers the oldest known examples of this innovative apparel, a new study…

Cool!

(Sorry, I’m not sure what the actual anthro tumblr battle call is..)

I’m in the process of buying my first personal trowel. Until now I’ve always just used whatever my professors/field leads had lying around, but I’ve decided it’s time to step up to the big leagues and actually have my own. Any advice is appreciated!

Any good places to buy from? Favorite brands? Marshalltown or WHS? Does the ‘women’s’ trowel actually feel better (I’ve never used one before)?

I use one each- pointing and margin trowel, both 5 inch Marshalltowns (okay, probably 8 pointy and 2 margins). And buy a Goldblatt locally to keep in your kit incase someone needs to borrow one:)
