Due to site staff holidays and unexpected illnesses I have been sent out on site. Unfortunately this has coincided with what here in Britain is called a heatwave, i.e. 25-30°C. Readers in Australia, inland USA, Russia etc are probably laughing at this. It was nasty last Friday, with 32°C (90°F) on an open field with little wind and a clear blue sky. I'm digging in a longsleeved linen shirt in the hope that it will protect me from sunburn, and am slathering sunlotion on my legs. The site itself is rather unspectacular: a prehistoric field with some boundary ditches and post holes. Which is good, because when it's over 25°C my brain can't handle much more advanced questions than which of these two intersecting ditches is the oldest one.

This weekend is hot too, but according to the weather forecast it will drop to 21-23°C at the beginning of next week. Woohoo! Now that's nice summer temperatures. If that continues I may be able to get out and do something fun at next weekend.
