The Life of Badgers revealed – BAJR

Very very excited to take part in this Day of Archaeology 2013.   As it grows, it begins to show the true diversity of what we – as archaeologists – actually do.   From finds conservation to excavation, from research project to commercial evaluation.  Across the globe, the archaeologist shares a day.  So, with this in my mind, I thought, perhaps it is time to reveal the secrets of BAJR – the British Archaeological Jobs Resource – affectionately known as ‘badger’.


On Friday – from the moment I wake – around 5:30am…   to my first cup of tea through to my last cup of coco  ( or wine )  I will let you peek inside the frantic world of BAJR…   never dull and often filled full of curveballs and odd requests.   I look forward to sharing my story and reading the others on the classic that is now Day of Archaeology.

I have been reminded that what happens around me is the other half of the dynamic duo…  Maggie and Past Horizons –    so prepare for hilarious tool related stories…  and gasp as the editing of articles and stories goes to the wire…  before finally the article is published and the next one slaps onto the desk!

Archaeology – never dull…!

Tune in to find out what is happening here as well.    –   You see I am not just a desk jockey!
