UConn students work to preserve watery archaeological site
Laurent Matson, a UConn-Avery Point senior, is shin-deep in water with his sleeve pushed up, fishing for the end of a piece of metal. A boat goes by and the wake splashes him. Nearby, Arthur Williams, a junior, is also suffering. Water has long since slopped over his knee-high boots and now it's marinating his cold toes.

Ah, archaeology. Ah, water. Ah, the pains of mixing the two on a chilly fall day.
