Archaeology seems to have entered my field of vision over the last week.
But it has been a case of moving from the ridiculous to the sublime.
After enduring the BBC’s new prime-time drama series last Tuesday, I then stumbled upon something from the land of my fathers that put a smile on my face.
I spent some of my childhood growing up in Caerleon, the small town (it isn’t a village!) close to Newport.
It has some spectacular Roman ruins and not surprisingly my junior school took full advantage with regular trips to the main site and the museum.
There is currently another major archaeology excavation going on in Caerleon and they’ve got a dig blog.
Its nicely written, with some interesting insights into the painstaking processes the excavation team go through and explanations of some important finds.
Good stuff and I bet none of the Caerleon team have stood over the site and said: “Give up your secrets.”
