FIELD BLOG -- November on Saipan
Sunday, November 1st
We started another day of the dig with the rainbow.
It turned out that the burial we have excavated since the second day of our field work was actually a mass burial of Japanese soldiers.
Today we found belt buckle, bullets, helmet, teeth, and Japanese dog tag, along with the hipbone.
We also started the grass cutting in another site where 27th infantry division was sitting when Japanese suicide attack was charged on July 7th 1944.
In the first trench, a leg bone, poncho, and bullets were uncovered already,
which might belong to someone from 27th infantry division.
Tomorrow, we will dig around the remains and will see what will be discovered.
