The Irish Fieldschool of Prehistoric Archaeology
Week 2, day 10. First wettish day on site. Still OK to work in, but the sieving is going much slower. Richie has been finding fragments of cremated skull outside the front of the tomb, presumably thrown out by the badgers…. Our temporary site-dog, Foxy, has gone to a good kennel and will be going for a wash, vet visit and hopefully to a good permanent home in the near future.
