The trowel is packed away (for now...)

We departed site on Sunday a little later than planned (those last minute jobs of drawing and recording always seem to take a lot longer than you think!).  I pulled into the drive in Chester just after midnight on Monday morning. 

Now we begin the process of putting all the pieces of our excavation work together to create the story of what we think was going on in the field.  Scanning and digitising drawings, sorting through the context sheets, doing some research on our finds - it should all come together in the next month or so and we'll have our 'Data Structure Report' ready.  We are hoping to revamp our website a bit in the coming months, too, so that there will be more information about the project, some more pictures and for those interested in the technical side of things, online versions of our interim reports. 

In the meantime we have great memories (mostly documented by Hayley and her great photos on the Rhynie Woman facebook page!) of our two weeks in Rhynie and the fantastic enthusiasm and energy of everyone in the village and our other visitors. We'll keep trying to post when we get some new information or update the site. Thank you Rhynie!

Dancing in the street at Rhynie - that was one long strip the willow line! I'm still exhausted!
