Today (Sunday), Alexandra and I gave tours of the two Smiths Island archaeology sites to two groups that came by boat - about 70 in all in two waves.

As we took down the tarps that shaded and sheltered our dig and took closing overhead photos of the sites, it became clear the extent of the work we had done.
The Cotton Hole Bight site also went through a dramatic change, from a shaded glen to an open platform suggesting the large size of the house that once stood there. Despite the heat, the two groups had a lot of energy and asked great questions. A few people were even excited enough to ask about volunteering next summer. All in all, a fantastic connection with Bermuda's most historically minded citizens.
