Stuck in the Mud

Watch the heroic (and somewhat comical) attempt of some of the excavation team to muck their way through the freezing mud and make it back to the trucks after a long day.

This is the second installment in a six-part series of video journals documenting the daily life and fieldwork of Field Museum archaeologist Dr. Bill Parkinson and his colleagues during their expedition to Hungary's Körös River Valley, where they're unearthing the remnants of some of Europe’s earliest villages.
