Ok, ok, I KNOW. I've got a long list of things I've promised to post about that I haven't done yet, but I was distracted by an article about a dig happening RIGHT NOW over at the Lloyd Manor House at Lloyd Neck. They are excavating what they believe is a slave quarters there--the Lloyd family were one of the largest slaveholders on Long Island with 10 slaves, though slavery on Long Island has traditionally been one of those things that has fallen under the table of History, so to speak. And, as it's one of those things I read a lot about when I was researching Long Island archaeology back in junior year, but that little work has been done regarding it, it piqued my interest.

...So, short of the long, is that I've just sent off a desperate email to the associate professor in charge, and SWEET JESUS, I hope I can still get my foot in volunteer wise.

Alas, no docent job, but I will be able to do some volunteering, and I'm hoping to impress them so that I can get some sort of lab job or intership in their lab over the year. Or maybe I should whore myself to the Society for the Preservation of LI Antiquities, who are sponsoring the dig.

BUT, in other news, You're on LONG ISLAND!?!?!? Am I reading your lj correctly? 'Cause if that's so, we need to do some serious hanging out and catching up. I'm sorta busy this week, but my cell's 631 766 3915.
