Everytime I see clips of these archaeologists dig stuff, I can’t help but wonder how do they know where or when to stomp their shovel into the ground? It seems to me that if you aren’t for certain, your digging could easily damage or break a potentially great discovery.
I’ve seen anything from shovels to excavators and they seem to go pretty hard into the dirt.
So how do they know how much force to hit and make sure they don’t cut or destroy such ancient and delicate items?
