Hola! Today we spent some time in the university in Santarém. We saw the archaeological department and the enormous amount of archaeological materials they have there. We also visited a nearby site and worked with the measuring equipment and learned a bit about Brazilian excavation methods. One thing that stand out about their methods that we don’t have in Sweden is that they very often use machétes to clear paths in the vegetation!
