31 July 2016

20160731_130614July is an interesting point in the archaeological year. It is peak fieldwork season for many academic archaeologists, and my other half is no exception. So July normally means he is away on excavation, and I go and visit him for a few days. I also do the Day of Archaeology around this time, so it is a weird mixture of me doing nothing if at all possible and pretending to myself I am able to be on holiday, and then me frantic on WordPress, utterly absorbed in my digital archaeology, as actual archaeology goes on around me. I spent today on the site where the analogue archaeologists are working, which meant no wifi for me. It was too hot for ginger people to be outside, so I spent my time in their site hut using a qualitative data processing package called Nvivo to code some responses to a piece of research I am undertaking at the moment. Then I had a nice nap.

Digital archaeology is actually pretty season-free. Maybe we just wear slightly less or more depending on the temperature.
