Today, the dig went well. I attacked the glacier with new vigor and broke through to a level deeper than any of have seen before. To my delight, Petherington’s hypothesis that there was once a civilization here, before everything was covered in ice and snow has been proved correct. I uncovered unmistakable evidence that an ancient road had been buried under the glacier.
Now night has fallen and the air grows too cold to work further, so we have retreated to our pop tents to watch “Miracle on 34th Street” while I write up my notes for the day. Tomorrow I will despatch them to the National Geographic Society by carrier pigeon.
