Street Art - Urban Archeology #3
There is something about sidewalks in Vegas that I never saw back east. I don't know what causes it. Maybe it's the hard water, strong sun, sand, or all of these. Whatever it is, the effect/pattern markings on the concrete sideways are interesting and artistic. No two are alike. Each is unique. This group I discovered on in front of a fountain @ the Red Rock casino

This is a set of stairs that has been buried for at least 80 years, perhaps longer. Not sure when they were built. Certainly in the 1800's, maybe in the 1700's. I know that it is my job to know these things, but we have not yet excavated enough on this particular foundation to know for sure.

A bit of fun for todays two postings. Starting with this image I took at Abermawr in North Pembrokeshire a while back. You're studying archaeology, you're on a windy beach and you want to relax and read your journal. Need a windbreak? So build one, which is exactly what this young couple did. She laid back to enjoy the read while I spent an hour watching her young consort walking the length of the beach several times gathering suitable stones to make his own mini Cromlech (burial chamber) in the form of Pentre Ifan, a full size example that can be found a few miles away near Newport.
