How to use depressor in a sentence?

  1. Jeremy DeSilva:

    Mary Leakey made exquisitely detailed maps of the footprint localities. From Mary Leakey map, we were able to approximate where the tracks should be. We began to dig, hoping for the best, but fearing instead that forty years of seasonal rains had washed them away, the soil was hard as cement and it took a hammer and chisel to reach the footprint layer, which we then needed to excavate delicately with a hard-bristled brush and tongue depressor. Fortunately, the footprints were beautifully preserved.
