Before Christmas, our largest trench received the almost unprecedented luxury of a roof to protect both archaeology and archaeologists from the harsh winter weather. The rest of us weren’t so lucky.
This week, however, things didn’t seem quite so bad, as the perennial mud and rain were replaced with a glorious blanket of snow.
It might not make digging any easier (or warmer), but it certainly put a smile on people’s faces. And you don’t get that by cowering under a roof!
