This is just a quick update. We are trying to expand our unidentified finds website.
What? You didn’t know that we had an unidentified finds website? Well, let’s rectify that.
Go to http://www.tmsifting.org/uifinds/ and you will find a website dedicated to crowdsourcing information about finds we are having trouble identifying. Register, and you can see our unidentified finds. Please leave comments if you have seen anything similar. Link us to articles or other people who might have expertise on one of our unidentified finds. Spread the word and get more people involved.
Here is one artifact we are working on now. Can you identify this item?
If you can identify this item, or suggest a time period or a function for it, please join us on our website and let us know what you think! Here is the link to this artifact: http://www.tmsifting.org/uifinds/?to=viewfind&find_id=32429
How about this one?
We are currently in the process of photographing a large number of special finds from the sifting. Very soon we will try to add a few new finds to the site every couple of weeks. Keep tabs on our site to see what you can contribute and how you can help us further our research.
Even if you aren’t an expert or an archaeologist, the site is pretty interesting. The discussions taking place about different finds are really interesting.
Thanks for helping!
