Things got busy down in Gorham's Cave this morning as our team arrived to start three weeks of excavations. Old friends met while new ones saw the impressive site for the first time. The first day is being spent bringing equipment to the site and also cleaning old sections and generally preparing the site for excavation. Here are some pics from today...
