Podere Cannicci – Day 8 (June 3, 2022)

The students at Cannicci have showed incredible growth over the past two weeks, displaying independence and aptitude in both documentation and the use of various tools. Today, the team at Area 1 finished defining the edges of the trench and documenting Contexts 70 and 75, both representing probable raw floors defined by a hard-packed, yellow clay. After fully understanding the relationship between Context 75 and the mixed stone and tile contexts that bordered it, 60 and 73, which we now know to be an earlier action than the floor, we began to remove Context 75’s soil. The team plans to finish this task on Monday, after which we will be able to understand whether the stones represent a contiguous feature. The past few weeks have proven that our interpretations are always changing and that there is always something to discover!
