Another fieldwork picture form the archives. This shows Daryl watching the tide come into our units at Kilgii Gwaay (map) – this is Operation 8a and 8b, if I recall, from 2001. At first we tried to completely dig out a unit during a single tide window but this was quite rushed, and limiting. So we tried lining the units with bubblewrap and then just before the tide reached them we would pump them full of water (hose into a bucket in the bottom of the unit) to provide outwards pressure on the sidewalls and to prevent erosion of the unit edge. This actually worked really well: for the most part the units survived the tidal change and could be pumped out with no trouble.
