Winter update December 2009

Well, we haven't been idle since the weather forced us to stop surveying out in the field. Far from it, we have been busy indoors, gathering our papers, drawings, photographs and thoughts. In a series of Wednesday mornings we have been running workshops where we have been inking up the field plans, drawing and photographing the finds (mostly flints found scattered around the field), cataloguing and filing, and preparing a display for exhibition next spring.

These sessions have been essential for collating the results we have so far, and forming some initial ideas about the project and its findings. It's given us a chance to consider how we approach the next stage of the field survey next year, and also allowed us to develop our hachuring skills!
