Gone through the pile of papers and made a list of what is there. Glancing at my diary, I realise I also have to read papers for a meeting in London next Tuesday – one 30-page paper to read carefully and inwardly digest.
There are some interesting papers in the pile. A lot of work outside the heritage sector in engaging young people in volunteering, in nature and in cultural activities. I’ve long suspected that archaeology is very insular in its approaches and needs to plug itself into the wider world. Looking forward to reading these.
Of course, it’s begun raining again so no hope of sitting out in the yard in the sunshine and reading through the pile in a pleasant environment. Ah well, I shall console myself with nipping into the farmers’ market in town to buy lots of lovely food!
