Happy Canada Day long weekend from everyone at Blumenhof! We hope you had a great weekend and were able to enjoy the sun and the heat. Tomorrow kicks off our fourth week at the dig site. It's hard to believe that we are already half done! After the three day break we are all eager to get back into the field, and we are thrilled to be able to welcome students from SRSS to the site! We are excited to be able to share what we have discovered with the new students, and to continue to share our story with you.
