Journal 4: Difficult Digging

Körös Region, Hungary

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 by Dr. Parkinson as he documents daily life and fieldwork during his expedition to Hungary's Körös River Valley, where he and his team are unearthing the remnants of some of Europe’s earliest villages.
