Preparations are under way. In addition to Mairead and her pollen coring, we will also be having days of training in site recognition, which will be led by me, and also Debbie Lewis will be coming out to demonstrate how we map all the sites and our excavations using a drone.
The site recognition training is essential as the archaeology is great, but not that obvious, so we will show how we are using all the techniques available to us to identify the surface features. We will be using IPADs with GPS locations onto orthophotos to help us find our way through the archaeology. I am hoping it will be not only fun but also very educational.
