Description

A black and white photo of two men jacketing a fossil. Jacketing is the process of constructing a plaster and burlap casing to place on the fossil after it has been excavated from the ground. The men are on top of a rocky butte. The man on the left is holding a casing in his hands, while the other man is sitting next on a pile of rocks to the right. There are a couple of shovels leaning against a rock, while a large pail is partially hidden behind it. More buttes are in the background with a valley extending beyond the buttes. A white border surrounds the photo.
