Today we sampled a site quite some distance around the north coast. Here's a view of our site (with a calf for scale), which contained about 2 meters of nearly rockless soiI. It took researchers a long time to recognize that all these rocks were put in place by people to reduce water losses from cultivated plants. Amazing, eh?
