THE HILL 80 DIG DIARY
3 APRIL 2018
The Easter Holidays are over and in less than two weeks the archaeological excavation of Höhe/Hill 80 will finally begin. Until then preparations behind the scenes are still running at full steam and there is still an enormous checklist to work through.
Only yesterday the fencing elements were delivered (courtesy of Aannemingen Vanlerberghe bvba, Diksmuide), the EOD team of DEMIRA AUSTRIA is due to arrive in only nine days, on-site electricity/WiFi access and water supply are being sorted at this moment, while soon the first storage and living containers will be set up.
During the initital crowdfunding campaign this website has been used little but we are pleased to announce that this will change on 16 April 2018 with the launch of the HILL 80 DIG DIARY. In the diary you will find news about our discoveries on site, reports written by our archaeologists and historians and all kinds of other information about the progress of the excavations and daily life on the dig.
For peek over the archaeologist’s shoulders and live stream/video reports will still offer access to our VIRTUAL DIG TEAM on Facebook.
