ossamenta: A flock of sheep from a medieval manuscript (Sheep)
I've recorded three quarters of the Medieval Wool Project sheep skeletons at Historic England, and could probably do the rest in a day. But after recording a small assemblage from an archaeological site I think I might have to revise my methodology, i.e. split one trait into two. Which would, of course add a fair bit of time to my remaining recording time. Not to mention being a general pain in the neck.

I just want to get this thing done, so I can concentrate on organising with a museum to have a look at a couple of assemblages to use my method on. Admittedly, first the method must be tested, but that's for other people (so not to risk bias - is the written up method clear and concise for its purpose, and does the sexed traits in one sheep population match those of another population?).
