Difficult Digging

Discover how difficult it is to dig through heavy mud and expose archaeological features after spring snowstorms and rain at the excavation site. (From behind the camera, Dr. Parkinson has a sarcastic discussion in Hungarian with his hard-at-work colleagues about the lovely weather.)

This is the fourth 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.
