Internet access

Today I’m an archaeologist, yesterday an office administrator

That’s the trouble – trying to find the time to finish archaeological work and keep afloat otherwise – it works OK but I’ve got 5 part-time jobs just to be able to engineer a day to work on the incomplete monograph. Today’s the day! So, back to the location issues of the early Anglo-Saxon settlement and their soil preferences – also tidying up a report on a textile impression on a stove tile – a completely new area for research apparently, oh and there’s the old site archive to sort out and think about a paper abstract for TAG. Plus this is the worst area (East Sussex) for internet access. Actually, it’s all rather interesting, so I’ll stop moaning and get back to it. All the best.

New Bronze Age finds at the British Museum: Twittering…

Arrived at the BM to find a small plastic container full of neatly wrapped objects waiting for me: a new hoard from Nottinghamshire.

Like many Bronze Age hoards from Britain it was found by a metal detectorist on private agricultural land.

The hoard consisted of 18 objects, some complete and some fragments, including tools and weapons.

Unfortunately I have no Internet access here at the BM so picturescan be found on my twitter feed @bronzeageman.

First, the sword remains…
