I am at one of the worse internet cafes here in Konya, and have been unable to change the keyboard, so this post will be fairly short. I have managed to upload some images, but still no luck with video–I am hoping to make a short run to Çumra this week, but time is running out!
Digging in Building 49 (the name of the house that we are currently excavating) has been way more fun than should be allowed on a research excavation, but there have also been a few aggravations. The platforms of the buildings here are where the inhabitants buried their dead, so I have had a lot of skellies to sort out, of all shapes, sizes, and ages. I care more about their context and their place in the stratigraphic sequence, and so tensions can rise when the specialists who are more interested in the bones come to dig the things. It will all work out though, hopefully, and we will get the building finished in the next couple of weeks. Next I will update with another diary entry and possibly an abstract I just sent to a conference. But for now, I am going to get away from this awful cafe, get some tea, and go shopping for rugs.
