Day of Archaeology

Next Friday (29th July) is the 'Day of Archaeology':

And I'm taking part, documenting work on Crickley - it's unlikely to be very exciting, though who knows what may turn up?!

Think I've now cracked digitising in QGis, so hope to start this as soon as the plans are scanned (with the help of Dan B).

In process of co-ordinating the site grid (though it still needs tweaking):

More grotty pot

Lid or shallow bowl found in the surface of a silted-up post-hole of an Iron Age building (which would have appeared as a hollow in the ground by the LPRIA):

Still plodding on...

Just a note to say, I've not given up!

I've written a new draft introduction to the report, and I'm now part way through re-writing the chapter describing the contexts. I'm trying to make it a little easier to read and understand, outlining the features by cutting, and then summarising the buildings in a subsequent section. I'm also currently going through cross-referencing the finds from the buildings, though I anticipate that most of the info. will have to remain within the separate chapters (e.g. ceramics, metalwork, etc.)

Still after volunteers to help in producting matrix diagrams neat enough to go in the volume, and anyone fancy dong some nice reconstruction drawings / digitisating plans?
