Excavation day in Pikermi!

Last Monday, we went, with a small group of students accompanied by a professor, in Pikermi for a day of excavation.
Pikermi is known for the savana-type fossil faunas: rinoceros, giraffes, saber-tooths, pigs, hipparions, and other animals that do not live in european lands anymore.

Here are some pictures:

Pikermi stream

Here I am, I dug up – with a friend – an upper jaw of a hipparion with 4 molars attached. The stream – small river – made it a little harder to dig…

Bottom of the river

 

In this picture there is a whole cranium that took two or three hours to take out of  the sediment.

Although we worked only for a day, we found very nice specimens!
