27/01 Went to the chicken conference today – truly inspiring… learning about all things chicken and the many diverse ways they translate past cultures into the human story
It is the Roman Caistor conference tomorrow… Town of the Iceni…. looking forward to giving a talk on the animals and their role in the town
Exciting find! piece of whale bone from a middle Iron Age-early Roman site in Northamptonshire
The report on Doghole is nearly finished – Late Iron Age and Roman deliberate depositions into a cave… lots of neonates and cattle lower leg bones, oh and dogs of course
Taken delivery of the first lot of bones from Lindisfarne, Green shiel site for assessment – will it turn out to be Europe’s first excavated vellum production site?
