description

Slightly concave shovel with straight cut, made of sheet steel. Usually there is no handle on the stem, but a T-handle also occurs.

The sand shovel serves to move sand, gravel, crushed stone, etc. The archaeologist uses the sand shovel to scrape off very thin layers of soil to make the traces visible.
