TT99: 'Archaeology in action' -- Moving finds

Here you see a video made in October 2001, near the end of the season. Wooden boxes containing finds have to be taken from the tomb to the magazine. The biggest problem was how to get the boxes down to where the SCA pickup was waiting. A nearby donkey cart was 'borrowed' for a while, and the boxes loaded on there; everyone then acted as brakes to prevent the whole lot from running away down the hill.
