A good internet connection thanks to Didier. We have just visited the former dyeing pits of Karimama, where we’ve arranged for a protective wall to be built around the 30 dyeing pits preserved by a local landholder at this former dyeing metropolis.
Didier and art historian colleague Romuald arrived yesterday together with four MA students and the project vehicle. Excavation and post excavation processing proceed well, we are now 26 people. Interest in the next couple of days focuses on current crafts or recently forgotten crafts. The students maygo for a day trip at the gani festival of Banikoara.
