Thoughts from the Field…

I’m just coming off about 7 weeks in the field…first the University of Arkansas archeological field school at Historic Washington State Park, then the Arkansas Archeological Society Summer Training Program at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park…Pics can be found on my Flickr page:

More on the digs later…but for now, I am reminded of a HST quote:

I returned to the Holiday Inn — where they have a swimming pool and air-conditioned rooms — to consider the paradox of a nation that has given so much to those who preach the glories of rugged individualism from the security of countless corporate sinecures, and so little to that diminishing band of yesterday’s refugees who still practice it, day by day, in a tough, rootless and sometimes witless style that most of us have long since been weaned away from.
