Tim Braybrooke: Senior Archaeologist Daydreams of Experimental Archaeology & BBQs

Today, I am in the office mostly crunching numbers in a post excavation analysis, data basing stylie.

Crunching numbers but fondly remembering my most recent fieldwork site, down by the river where, after finishing up for the day, we would spark up a BBQ and, with the smoke and scent of grilling bangers and chicken wafting through the warm evening air, we started making pots and votive figurines out of the clay freshly machined from a trench and then firing them on a bonfire.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm………

Oooooohhhhh………

Ta-dah!

Oh happy days…

BBQs and pot making don’t constitute a normal working day for professional archaeologist but demonstrate that the best advantage must always be made of any given situation.

Until the next given situation: crunch, crunch, click, click, tap, tap, scribble………
