The 2015 Dig Diaries are online. This is a record of the work done by the University of Leiden team.

This year they were joined by the team from the Turing Museum.

Apparently a short season but always interesting to read.
One of the finds was a 4-sided stele for a man named Samut and his wife.

My word, that was quick!

The campaign only ended on the 28th of May and we already have the first report. I just wish other excavators were as prompt. The act of excavation is a one shot affair and if the reports are either incomplete or not even made then all that has been achieved is vandalism and irreparable damage.

Excellent. Very Happy
