It is hard to believe that I have been in Vescovado for 2 weeks now. We have not done any digging yet, but that will change tomorrow since we start work on the hill. Although I have been up there for the last week working anyway. I had an entire week to set up the trenches on the hill. It was great, nice relaxing and not rushed. But that leads to short posts since it is a very repetitive action. Set up transit, measure out a nail, move transit, repeat. Most of the people were in the Mag working on different publication projects, I helped a little there doing some data entry, but most of my time was on the hill.
On Friday however I did get to clear a path between two important markers on the hill that has been overgrown recently so that was super helpful.
This weekend I mostly hung around Vescovado. I did get to go to the Olive Garden test kitchen for lunch on Saturday. It was a weird experience, it was a Tuscan restaurant, but with more expensive dishes, and not as much variety. Also no endless bread sticks. It is in a beautiful bed and breakfast and the views around the garden. Then today, Sunday I went to Buonconvento to see the Museum there (it is down the road and I have never gone in the 4 years I have been coming here). It was small, took a half hour, and had no medieval pottery in it (which was the reason for going). But I did get caffe and caramel gelato afterwards.
That is about it for this week, but with digging starting I will have more to report soon. Till then, ciao.
