Ek eet, slaap en drink die afgelope tyd eksamenantwoordstelle. En net toe ek dog ek het bietjie wysheid en pag stuur die volgende juweeltjie my geheel en al terug na die tekenbord:

Vraag:
Explain how a study of vegetation may contribute to the finding of archaeological sites. (4)

Model-antwoord alvorens my memorandum:
Vegetation can be an effective indicator of the presence of an archaeological site. Grass may grow more lushly in areas where the subsoil has been disturbed or the nitrogen content of the soil is greater. In South Africa for instance sites with large cattle dung accumulations in livestock enclosures are today characterised by dense stands of a specific grass species, Cenchrus ciliaris (blue buffalo grass). In some cases, specific types of trees or bush are associated with archaeological sites. One such example is of the breadnut or ramon tree, which was cultivated by the Maya. These trees are still common near ancient sites and have been used as indicators of archaeological sites. In addition, soil which has been artificially disturbed will retain more moisture in a dry climate than will virgin soil; consequently plants which require more moisture to survive will grow there.

Die Juweeltjie: Alternatiewe Antwoord
Many archaeological sites are found like for an example when you garden your garden or plant (vegetation). People have found artefacts while trying to plough their lands or do gardening with a spade. There 4 (dankie Mxit…) the gardening and plantting of vegetation helps to find sites. Gardening is good.

Ek speel nog alte lekker met my nuwe speelding! Ongelooflik watter nuwe (makro)wêreld hierdie stukkie tegnologie ontsluit…en daarby vra Netjane toe vir nog ‘n ou kiekie of twee.
Ek is natuurlik glad nie onwillig nie…inteendeel! 😉

Brommer. Mooi nè!

Soos ek reeds laat blyk het, is ek vrek besig deesdae…maar ook darem nounie so besig dat daar nie tyd vir so bietjie pret is nie. My nuutste fotografiebelegging het vanmiddag geland – en my hele werkskedule opgeneuk…heerlik! 😉

makrolensCanon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Makrolens

Ek is mal oor makrofotografie en wou nog altyd my hand hieraan waag maar die regte “gear” is relatief duur, juis omdat dit so ‘n spesialisveld binne fotografie is. Anderdag sien ek ‘n ou “special’tjie” raak en trek die kredietkaart nader…drie dae later staan ek met een van Canon se suksesvolste en gewildste makrolense in die hand. Ek het glad nie op my laat wag nie en die tuin ingevaar.

Ok, back to work…suggg.
