If you haven't seen Time Team on the television you are missing out on archeology at its most entertaining. The McTavish boys have been keen archaeologists thanks to Tony Robinson and crew. A few weeks ago when they visited us, Lion did some digging in the garden and under the trees and eventually became frustrated and threw in the trowel because he couldn't find any archeology.
A devoted Grannysaurus could not leave it at that. If the boys wanted to find archeology, then archeology had to be found. So mysteriously archeology started to find its way under the big mango tree. Very sensible of previous civilizations to leave their relics in the shade. Old tools, hose fittings, coins, bones and odds and ends were lying just below the surface waiting to be discovered apparently. So when the boys returned for another sleepover, we decided to put in two trenches. What do you know - they found plenty of archeology. The most exciting finds were the "dating evidence" (the coins).
As usual Dragon was the King of Silly Faces. Unfortunately Cheetah didn't star in any of the photos of the day because he was the official photographer. I love his photo of Lion in the middle top of the collage.
Morning tea was Anzac biscuits again thanks to Cheetah's kitchen skill.
Would you believe that four year old Dragon actually accused me of putting the archeology in the ground? No flies on that boy!
