Well the graduation for my first group of Latin students is over and my friends Eric & Kayla are married, all that is left to do is pack and get the blog up and running. So here I am dusting her off and getting ready for another summer working on an archaeological excavation. This will be year number 7 for me at Poggio Civitate, in Murlo Italy. It is really amazing how time has flown by, tempus fugit as they say.
Just a note about the subjects of this blog. It started as a way for me to communicate with my relatives about what I was doing in Italy. Of course it leaked out and friends found it and now my audience has grown since then, but the idea is still the same. I talk about things that are going on with the site and the local area. Sometimes I get very technical, other times it is more touristy. If you want to find a blog that is very academic about archaeology I recommend visiting my colleague, Lucy S., and her blog. She is a British PhD student and writes a fantastic blog which hits more of the academic side of archaeology: http://potsplacesstonesbones.blogspot.co.uk/
This year I will be in Italy from June 18 till August 5 and posting about once a week. So look for some amazing posts about transiting and cleaning pottery and eating amazing food in the coming weeks. Ciao
