End of Field Season at Yalburt (August 8, 2016 Facebook Post)

We just walked and looked at the ground for a whole month! Have you ever looked at the ground for a whole month? We saw rocks, we saw plants, we saw dung beetles, found snake skins, we found Chalcolithic sherds, beautiful plants in the yaylas, learned to give space to turtles, challenged goats, we said hello to shepherds, we saw more sherds, sometimes it rained, we walked and looked at the ground, pokies poked our feet, Hittites, we saw little people, we saw large mountains, dipped our feet into the waters of a lake, ate black mulberries until our hands were bright red. The makers of this survey are those beautiful people in the last phtograph. Your gentle shadows are on the hillside!
