Other sites we re-excavated include the Hiatus site, the Ross Scott Orr site, Rick’s Alien Probe site, Mike’s Potato Patch site and the Bitesantennary site.
Members of the Riversleigh Community and Scientific Advisory Committee (“RCSAC” which sounds like a rodent control chemical) visited us while we were excavating at the Ross Scott Orr site, and joined in with the sledging (Figure 24).
This year Henk Godthelp and Phil Creaser commenced their task of laying numbered metal plaques at historical fossiliferous Riversleigh sites and re-recording their GPS coordinates in a database (Figure 25).
Rick found a nice site with cave pearls and named it “Pearls of Wisdom” (Figure 26).
Dylan Bye found parts of a stalagmite while wondering around the Gag Plateau. We had trouble re-locating this site until our last few hours at the RWHA when it was found again. Small excavation at this site revealed more speleothems associated with exciting bits of bat bone (Figure 27). It is hoped that Sue Hand will be able to use the dating from these speleothems to assist with the dating of the Gotham City site. Dylan named this site Dilly’s Delightful Dangling Doodle (“D4”).
