A hectic week at work. Lots going on, all (hopefully) leading towards positive outcomes. Even so it’s nice to take a step back sometimes, and breathe.

Luckily this tranquil spot is five minutes walk from the office.

Lovely after-work bike ride, along the Montgomery Canal near our office in . You can see Beacon Ring - an Iron Age - in the distance.

I should really be finishing the book about our excavations there but sometimes it’s good to have a break!

@huhche9 Nice to meet you too! There aren’t many archaeologists here yet, but hopefully we will see more as we learn to ‘excavate’ in this medium. Good luck with your MA. Where and what are you studying?

This stone is a small fragment of surviving in the walled port town of .

Almost hidden in the side wall, this medieval feature was retained when this town house was rebuilt in the 1700s.

Visited the Teos archaeological site yesterday. It's minimally developed, but quite fun to explore. It's also covered in wildflowers right now and full of impressive old olive trees.

This is a penny of King Æthelberht II of East Anglia (r. AD 779-794), This coin dates from the time when there were multiple kingdoms in England (and indeed Wales). There was frequent competition between them, even warfare. At this time, Offa of Mercia was overlord of much of England south of the River Humber, so an underking issuing coins styling himself 'Rex' (King) was an unforgivable show of insubordination, so Offa ordered him killed.

@whysofurious Thanks for your welcome! The charity model is used in the UK for a variety of ‘services’ which in other parts of Europe might be delivered by the state, or in the US might be done by private enterprise. So it’s a not-for-profit organisational model that sits between the two. My organisation is the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust (www.cpat.org.uk) and we deliver services in Wales for Welsh Government, local government and private-sector developers. Hope that helps!

Ok setting up here. Seems like a nice new place to settle. Any #archaeology nerds out there? #digitalarchaeology perhaps? Well, we'll meet :ablobcatattention:

@ritualdust @detondev I would definitely agree about Sci-Hub, a really useful resource. Also, most of the archaeologists I know are more than happy to send copies of their papers to people who ask them directly.

A bit more by way of .

My career has taken me along some interesting paths - focussing and archaeology. Interested in archaeological and . Currently CEO of an archaeological charity in .

I also volunteer as of a leading independent in the English midlands, and as a Trustee of an in Wales.
