The excavations 2013
The 2013 excavations at Alken Wetlands lasted from July 15th to September 20th. The weather was fine without being too hot. Once the preliminary preparations such as the establishment of offices and staff facilities, the building of a bridge across the channel, water pumps and electricity were in place, the excavations continued from where we had left off the previous year. Part of the 2012 excavation area was re-dug in order to provide us with a workplace from which we could open new areas for investigation.
