High at Haille de Pout (La Depeche)

The French website "LaDepeche" has an article about a returning campaign to a high-altitude Cirque de Troumouse burial mound in Hautes-Pyrénées.  The site, Haille de Pout, contains Bell Beaker and Early Bronze Age materials.

The following snips are from the video interview with archaeologist Maxim Remicourt seen below (beard).

If you'd like to be part of this team, L'université Toulouse-Jean-Jaures is looking for experienced volunteers for a two-week excavation August 2019.

Here's a pretty rugged clay spoon that came out of the site.  Is that a perforation on the end?
