Back from the World Archaeological Congress in Dublin and back on site at Silchester. And guess what? The rain followed us 😦 We finished early on sunday, half hearted digging on Monday and noone was in the trench today. Better not be a repeat of last year!
Dublin made me really happy. It was a fab place with loads to do and see and made me feel homesick for Glasgow – they seem so similar. It was just another thing that made me realise I probably don’t want to stay in the south for long after this job ends, I’d like Yorkshire at least 🙂 I guess if a great and exciting job came up then I’d stay though.
The conference was mostly cool, a lot of interesting papers and people but a few odd and a few really boring ones. The Digital Age ones had the usual GIS papers etc and nothing really struck me as revolutionary, but maybe I was just hungover a lot!
Guinness would be a lot cheaper in Glasgow too! It was at least 5 euros per pint! I’ll be going back to Glasgow for a while in August – really looking forward to that 🙂
