Field notes

Site protection at its finest

There was finally an open window of dry, warm weather – hurrah!  Archaeologists all over the world cheer for this.  This means we are able to get back outside and dig some holes without having to wear and lug around excess gear.  Yesterday, this involved revisiting a known stone feature site, which happened to be a cairn right in the middle of an access road.  If you have ever wondered if developers listen when they say they’re going to protect something, here is proof.  Finding this made our job much easier, and it brought a little smile to my face.  It’s nice to see archaeology well protected; this is VERY well protected!
