June 14, 2010 — Scott, AR
I signed up to become a member of the Arkansas Archaeological Society (and its field school program) and spent a few weeks working with others at our site. I learned a lot. My favorite part of the whole experience was screening and tagging the various artifacts and ecofacts we found in the soil. The Arkansas heat can be a bit much though... After about two weeks, I developed a painful heat rash on both arms. Glad I didn't have any problems with chiggers though, as I know a few people did!
