Digging for knowledge

The scouts in archeology were on a mission to dig up artifacts for Archeology Merit Badge.  The challenge today was they only had thirty minutes to find all the artifacts, log the information and sort the artifacts.  The scouts needed to be organized to succeed today.  Many scouts started digging with excitement, but others cautioned them on damaging the artifacts, so they worked together to dig out the pit.  Two scouts volunteered to sift the dirt once others had dug it out into buckets.  Each bucket of dirt would be sifted carefully and anything left would be inspected.  ” I found something, its one of our artifacts”  a scout shouts in excitement.  After the scouts identified the artifact, another scout logs the information down in a log.  Soon two, three, four more artifacts are dug out and logged, a successful dig just under the wire.
