Gonna Ceilidh like it's (AD) 599!

We might not get to post much up tonight as we are soon headed into the village to give a short presentation about the project and our results in the trench (so far.. one day left!).  We also get to hear the experts from the Scottish Sculpture Workshop talk about their amazing and successful iron smelting experiment they carried out this afternoon.  Probably the hottest activity you could think to do on the hottest day of the year so far... it was amazing to see the smelting furnace in action. We promise pictures soon, but you can also check out the Rhynie Woman Facebook page if you can't bear to wait - Hayley is a much better photographer than any of us!
After our presentations, the village is hosting a ceilidh for us, too!  I can't remember my Gay Gordons from my Dashing White Sargeants really, but after a wee whiskey I'll give it a go.

Mostly today we were catching up on paperwork, finishing drawing sections and starting our post-ex planning.  Pictures to come!
