Working on an archaeological dig can be a bit dirty. Once I made it back home it was time for laundry to wash out some of the Iron Age dirt that my clothes had collected.
Here you can see that my jeans were a bit dirty. I like the protection that the denim gives me so have stuck with jeans on the digs I have been on. Many people wear just shorts or lighter materials, but I feel much safer in jeans. I also don’t have to worry about sunburn 🙂
The dig clothes went through the washer three times and they are mostly clean. One of the pair of jeans will now be my yard jeans and some of the items will be put away for use in a future dig.
Of course it also took a few showers for me to feel clean after the dig.
