trying to catch up

Just remembered today is THE day of archaeology, whoops. The timing was good for me, the date coincides with the last throes of getting the next issue of British Archaeology to press, and I thought I might let you into a few secrets of what goes on behind the scenes. But its a normal day in the editorial office, chaotic and behind, unanswered emails piling up by the hundred, printers wondering where the stuff is and a pigeon throwing soot down the chimney. I suppose that’s what it is really, a typical day in the life of an archaeologist who writes. But maybe later I might be able to say something more interesting. Meanwhile, read Maev Kennedy’s great piece! (Mike Pitts)
