La Ferrassie - 2013 Season

The 2013 field season is taking place from late July through to the end of August. We have a crew of about 30 students and researchers, and we are excavating levels from the entire sequence. In the photograph to the right, the three students working at the top are in the Aurignacian levels. The Middle Paleolithic ends with the brown level just below them. The students standing in the trench have their feet just above bedrock in the sterile sediments at the base of the sequence. In the foreground is a total station connected to a laptop computer running our data collection software (EDMWIN).
