Begining of Week 6 - already!

Just a very quick message while I am breezing through the internet cafe on my way to get more red plastic crates...We have just started our last week of excavations and are beginning to tidy things up. Two big things make the news for us: 1) last Friday it was 48 degrees celcius in Azraq!, and 2) yesterday we hit sterile deposits in our deep trench! Yippy. Matt - the deposits are clay, clay and more clay. We have just borrowed the CBRL auger and will see what else we can find you. Otherwise, the Early EP area has produced a very nice pit and a continuation of the series of stratified layers I mentioned earlier. We have only 2 more digging days, then sections, then backfilling! Wow, it has gone fast and we now have a lot of flints to deal with...

Clay! Fantastic!
If you've time for a quick OSL sample and to bring me some back to the UK that would be great!!
Glad all seems to have gone well....
