Now Playing Tracks

From the 2011 interim report from excavations at Marcham, Oxfordshire

This can go on the list of “things that are only really significant to me,” but in the Summer of 2011 I spent a whole day in the rain measuring and recording this trench, producing a smudged and torn drawing on thick drafting paper.

AND NOW LOOK HOW PRETTY IT IS!

Someone somewhere has turned it into this! Feeling superproud here. I also spent a long time digging at the lower right ditch end, so when that pops up in the discussion I get excited.

"Finds of disarticulated human bone down-slope in Trench 3 suggests that more of the pits may once have contained burials." - THOSE WERE MY DISARTICULATED HUMAN BONES!Weeeeee!
