It's time to glop
We are taking a break from excavating at Project 23 this morning to take care of some maintenance in Pit 91. Since this site is the lowest point in Hancock Park, water accumulates here. We are also constantly battling the seeping asphalt that clogs the drainage channels and covers the fossils. Suited up in protective gear, we are removing the asphalt by hand (known as glopping) and cleaning out the debris that has fallen in over the past few months.
