Hard at work cleaning coins after a long day in the field! #anarchaeologistsworkisneverdone
(We use electrolysis and manual cleaning methods to clean our ancient and corroded coins)

One of the best things about working on site is that there are always cute puppies hiding in the grass ❤️ #puppies #dogs #puppiesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #archaeology #timai #telltimai #egypt #egyptians #fieldwork
Yesterday was Eileen's last day with us this season, and so we used her selfie stick to take some great group photos with everyone on site ☺️ #Egypt #groupphoto #egyptians #archaeologists #archaeologistslife #archaeology #timai #telltimai #funinthesun #selfie #selfiestick #groupselfie #groupselfies #egyptianarchaeology
When you're trying to act professional but someone is hiding under your scarf to get out of the rain 😆
We weren't going to let a little rain stop us from getting take-away food in town to eat at the coffee shop to celebrate Eileen's last night with us this season. How else would we get another one of our now traditional pictures in front of the coffee shop?! ☺️ #rain #rainynight #bravingtheweather #coffeeshop #friends #egypt #egyptians #archaeologistslife #archaeologistshavingfun #beingsilly #mud #slippery #groupphoto #archaeologists

You know you have a good team dynamic when you can turn a boring afternoon of work cleaning an electric pump used while excavating the well, into a fun (yet very cold and muddy) water fight, which @yahiyafarouk clearly won 😆

If you're wondering what a work free day in Timai looks like, it looks like this: a feast for lunch at our friend Ahmed's house, playing ping pong at the sports center, hanging out on the roof until after sunset, and then ending the day with ice cream before bed ❤️ Couldn't ask for a better way to spend the weekend!

#tbt to last month when our team had a #rooftopparty at our dig house!
