So the summer is upon us and we’ve all been very busy as is evident from the lack of exciting posts! I spent a week digging in north Wales at Abergwyngregyn. It’s the third season of work there and a return after a couple of years off. The weather was changeable at best but there should be some good results. I’m now writing my dissertation on upland rural settlements of northern Wales from the late medieval period. PeteT went off to Fountains Abbey and dug part of an old manor house. He started off surveying the area and doing some geophysics with Drew then Clare and I did a bit of digging. Luis has disappeared off to Spain but is due for an eminent return. Drew and Clare have got the summer off from academic work as they’re studying again next year, the lucky pair, although Clare has been wandering around Broomhead Moor again looking for triangular stones!
As an aside, I have just found a rather nice short video of a large landscape, the World, and how it is seen from space. This is part of the Bella Gaia project, have a look at the video here with the project homepage here, http://www.bellagaia.com/
