Hello from Dr G(2) and Rhynie Youth Club

Well this is great summer weather!? Despite this we had a good day today - a clay mould, some excellent posthole and pit digging and for me a very nice Linda McCartney (other brands are available) sausage sandwich for lunch. We are beginning to make sense of the site with timber buildings in the centre of the enclosure, a series of ditched and timber boundaries and the symbol stones standing within the enclosures. The finds we have found this year underline the significance of the site.

This evening I had a great time showing the Rhynie Youth Club around the site. And very enthusiastic visitors they were too. The iron and bronze pins were whipped out and Vaidutis' classic posthole was on display. There was a clammer for the Rhynie Man to come back......perhaps we can help to achieve this as part of a long term goal of the project - ideas welcome!!

With the fire dying, I retire (to bed, not from the professsion).

Dr G.
