Dealing with finds

9.00: I am involved in post-excavation working, writing reports on pottery and finds and gathering together other specialist reports for publication. We are working on a report on the finds from a Roman fort, so my first task of the day is to sit at the computer and write about some stone sculpture.

11.30: E-mail discussions about the small finds assemblage from another site, and the frustrating lack of parallels!

12.00: I move from Roman to medieval. I get to leave the computer for a while to check some pot drawings to make sure they are OK for publication.
