Archaeological S words

Stepped stone structure at the City of David.
Sarcophagus at Rockefeller Museum.
Sacks of shards awaiting restoration.
Setting up shade on a sweltering day at one of my summer digs.
Swollen painful hand following stings. My pickaxe must have struck their underground nest in that square shown above. Several wasps flew straight into my work glove. Sh--!! is all she could say.

You poor thing, I hope your hand is better now. That must have really really hurt!

Your work must be very rewarding. It's an interesting site you're working at! I hope your hands will heal fast.
