  1. What a beautiful and serene forest. I can see that Tansy was a huge help. She appears to have excellent supervisor skills. Did they find what they were digging for?

    • Tansy was a help! Some interesting objects were found, and interesting layers suggesting positive results. They have to wait until radiocarbon dating is complete to find out if they actually did find what they were digging for!

    • The crew were apparently delighted to see her again! I know she has a good time on her expeditions, and the rest of the Quimper Hittys look forward to her return as she always has entertaining stories to tell!

  2. That Tansy is such an intrepid scientist. Love the photo of her showing her Fun loving side on the swing! Great pics and some interesting info.
