I killed dead my so-called-garden last Friday. It is empty now. Oh alright, empty save for the bits of small tree that are still in it (I did clip all the branches and such off…) and an astonishing amount of bulbs still left in the ground. I spent an hour with a little piece of the ‘garden’ that was maybe 20×20 cm and a bit of 20x30cm. I dug it out about 30 cm deep and ended up with half a bucket full of bulbs and bits of tree root. Sheer idiocy. And then to think I still have to excavate the rest of the bloody bulbs… Ghaaaa!
Anyway, this afternoon I’m visiting an excavation not very far from here where they’ve uncovered the remains of a medieval manor house. Today the site is open to the public and I wouldn’t be a proper archaeologist if I didn’t go and look, now would I? Mum is driving me there and friend Naga is coming along. I get giddy-ish just thinking about going there and walking around a dig site again in my trusty archaeology shoes (yes, I have archaeology shoes). I still don’t regret quitting archaeology though. No second thoughts or anything, it’s just nice to be able to do and experience archaeology from time to time.
