A REAP Project update

Well, it is that time of year when normally we would be packing up our kit and heading north or west(depending on which one of us was driving...).
This year we have had a change in our normal work pattern.

We are taking a temporary break from a 'big trench' season this 2014 although Gordon is planning on a series of community test pits and work later on this year (probably September!).  We'll keep you updated on that. I might be able to come up and see some action, but by then I will have a little (probably crying) project of my own to deal with!

We miss Rhynie already, of course, and I can't imagine a summer without a macaroni pie or one of Daisy's amazing baked goods.

In the meantime we are trying to ensure we have a good plan in place and the necessary funding for upcoming seasons and working through or post-excavation analysis and writing up.  As we get news we will post updates and the interim report of our 2013 excavation is just in final editing stage.

Speaking of post-ex...

Our radiocarbon dates for our 2013 mega trench in the Beverly/Medical Centre Field came through.  We have a real range of dates represented and we still need to make sense of some of them, but a post soon to follow!
