Rafi and Marc report on a slightly soggy but successful Open afternoon at the site!
Once again the weather forecasters get it spot on (funny how they always manage to accurately predict bad weather but when it comes to sunshine....?). It really is raining cats and dogs and we all doubt whether anyone will bother to turn up. We are however, prepared and the marquee is up with finds display tables and 'interactive' finds washing (ha ha!....glad I’m not volunteering for that one!) is ready to rock. Imagine our surprise when a steady stream of observers start to arrive and show genuine interest despite the deluge! I for one, and im pretty sure this is a view shared by my fellow diggers, am quite humbled by the extent of interest and enthusiasm shown by the public and I personally took great pleasure in doing a few guided tours of our site and engaging our attentive (if not soggy) audience. Hard to believe that in two days time, we will be laying down the terram and filling the whole site back up. I’m actually a little disappointed!........anyway.......I think that well-earned hot bath I’m running for myself is overflowing......!
Laters........Oh....and thanks loads for following us, it’s been hugely appreciated. :)
