Episode 8: The Privy Dig
Frank digs up some archeologists who specialize in unique recoveries of artifacts.
I wish I’d had more time with these guys. We were already booked for a job that day, but I knew I wanted to talk with them. So I squeezed it in and it was great. But if I could do it again, I would have been there all day, digging with them. Yes, I may dress in a shirt and tie, but I don't mind getting dirty too.
