Well, it is that time of year when normally we would be packing up our kit and heading north or west(depending on which one of us was driving...).
This year we have had a change in our normal work pattern.
We are taking a temporary break from a 'big trench' season this 2014 although Gordon is planning on a series of community test pits and work later on this year (probably September!). We'll keep you updated on that. I might be able to come up and see some action, but by then I will have a little (probably crying) project of my own to deal with!
We miss Rhynie already, of course, and I can't imagine a summer without a macaroni pie or one of Daisy's amazing baked goods.
In the meantime we are trying to ensure we have a good plan in place and the necessary funding for upcoming seasons and working through or post-excavation analysis and writing up. As we get news we will post updates and the interim report of our 2013 excavation is just in final editing stage.
Speaking of post-ex...
Our radiocarbon dates for our 2013 mega trench in the Beverly/Medical Centre Field came through. We have a real range of dates represented and we still need to make sense of some of them, but a post soon to follow!
