We spent one last day on site doing survey work, then post-excavation analysis began!

With the excavations done at Caraun Point, post-excavation analysis could begin. Before delving into shell sorting and soil sieving we spent one last day on site doing some last bits of survey work. Using a total station, we recorded the location of our trench corners as well as the base points for our midden surface surveys. We also continued our ongoing survey of the eroding coastline at the site, before getting rained off. After that it was back to the lab. Soil floatation took the better part of a day.
