Like an army, an archaeological project travels on its stomach. And boy are we traveling!

Last year the Bamburgh project home-cooked a series of meals, the same each day of the week, from week to week. And in order to offend no-one, they offended everyone – all the food made was bland and unappetizing.

Here we eat in a restaurant every night!

They have a wonderful salad bar, bread platters, and soup de jour, and two entree dishes. Totally satisfying for everyone. Hot, varied, delicious, local foods.

Last night we had locally caught fish in a rich creamy pastry. Tonight we had corned lamb. Scrumpious!

Weather: overcast / partly cloudy with light wind. More typical of this place, and great for outdoors work like we do. The bright sun is worse for seeing varied soil colors.

Spent today shovel scraping, troweling, and drawing in order to better understand the walls we see and correlate readings with the GPR units.

The other side of this garbage truck has another great photo too.

Half of the crew with trowels. We have 18 people at the moment.
