A lot of stuff!
  • wheelbarrows
  • shovels
  • picks
  • trowels
  • screwdrivers
  • small ice picks for finer digging
  • whisk brooms
  • paintbrushes
  • sugar scoops for scooping up dirt and putting into buckets
  • lots of plastic buckets
  • screens with wooden sides that we put the dirt in and shake back and forth to get little artifacts you might miss when you're digging up dirt
  • measuring tapes
  • plywood boards with graph paper for drawing
  • toolboxes for all our small tools like dental picks
  • balls of string and eight-inch nails for setting up our grid system
  • hundreds of meters of plastic sheeting to cover up exposed areas when it rains
  • two cameras with interchangeable lenses for recording everything we find
  • a video camera to document what we've found
  • and much more!
