0189 - A tricky day.

A beautiful first blade (lâmina de crista).


Today we started to collect the blades. Each one was numbered in the image on the laptop in the field, so we can analyse the spatiality of the remounting between fragments and understand the movement of the ploughing and the displacement of materials.

But then it came a heavy rain, and we had to leave the field. So, in the afternoon the work was carried out in doors. The anthropologists cleaned the bones…




… and the archaeologists the blades. These are the blades from tomb 3, so far.
