Week 8 was another big one for the Izapa Household Archaeology Project. We expanded excavations this week and now have six pits open at once, and opened five new units on three new mounds. The new units have already yielded some exciting finds, including stone architecture and more complete vessels. This week we also found our first figurine heads, a rarity at Izapa. Everyone is working very hard to keep up with all the cool new finds, but we’re feeling very lucky!
