The other day when I was at the university library, I glanced at the bookcase with new books and my eyes fell on a book on sites from early Medieval Ireland. Being curious on whether any sites I worked on when I was working in Ireland, I checked the table of contents, and lo and behold, one of my early reports was included! That's actually the first animal bone report from my years in Ireland that has been published - all the others went straight to the archive. On one hand, I'm quite chuffed. On the other hand... Well, let just say that it was one of my first reports, and if I had been handed the assemblage today, I would have been able to identify many more bones, and probably used a better comparative material.
Anyway, if you're curious, this is the book: C.Corlett and M. Potterton (eds). 2011. Settlement in early medieval Ireland in light of recent archaeological excavations
Other stuff I've seen:
- An advert for a two year post-doc job
for the fallow deer project
(Deadline 14 Aug).
- James Morris, the animal bone specialist at MOLA, blogged about his workday on the Day of Archaeology
, if you're curious on what on earth our jobs look like.
