I’m Living In An Archaeology Dig!

I’m apparently living out my dream in an Archaeology Dig!  Students were told today that in the building of the new college library here on campus, they found a massive ancient burial ground!  According to what I’ve been told, they estimate at least 1400 years old.  They believe that the people here were commoners who died peacefully, and after looking at the bodies, they are certainly mostly whole.  It is incredibly fascinating to see.  The students are allowed to simply wander around the burial spots at least until Monday when they will be closed off by the historians and archeologists.  I’ll post more pictures soon.  So Cool!!
