Knifes, spoons and bones!
Was what got everyone excited today. A bone knife and a wooden spoon were both found in context today. Also more animal bones were found. The drawing and recording continued.
The main objective of the drawing team was filling in the gaps from the previous days. The first 7 meters was complete and the 8.5 meters mark reached with bits and pieces still to add.
The timbers keep coming with 150 already marked and more to be labeled. The first 45 have been done, frames mainly. The safety net of the recorders may be coming to an end and now its plank time.
The day was wet and windy. The compressor decided to have a relapse today. This time it was the 1st stage that took the hit and we are still waiting for the diagnosis. Can it pull through again?
The longest dive of Skjernøysund 3 by the SDU MAP team took place today much to the dislike of the boat occupants, driver and standby who patiently sat for 131 minutes in one of the not so glorious Norwegian summer days.
There was more baking in the house today, fresh home-made bread has become a norm for the Norwegian team. And the dinners are getting more experimental which has produced delicious results, chicken in a coconut milk mixed sauce. Yummy!!!
A long evening followed with much drawing, recording of timbers and artifacts occurred. Eleven o’clock is looming in and bed time approaches for the weary divers.
