Digging in the dirt

In yesterday’s post Huell visited the Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. I recently came across these images shot by my mom during the spring of 1982. She was visiting the area with her anthropology class to observe the work of archeology students. I admit I feel respect for archeologists because I would never have the patience to stick with such painstaking work, toiling away for hours with the hot sun on my back — but how cool to find the forgotten “treasures” hidden under the dirt!

I’d love to know what this sign says!
