Thank to National Guard, Home Depot, 4H, and West Augustine Improvement Association for coming out to clean San Sebastian historic cemetery on this scorcher of a day. This cemetery is safer because of you!

(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:)

Archaeology at Epcot! Who knew? Nice little display in China on discovery of Terra Cotta Army with good messages about fragility of sites, importance of recording, and archaeology as a science.
