Finally Friday

This might sounds awful when one is lucky enough to get to work on an excavation but it’s been a warm week and I feel beat some this weekend will be a lazy one. On Thursday we had a thermometer with us to see how it was; at 2.30 pm it was 44° Celsius in the sun and 33° Celsius in shade.

Today’s find was of course mine (at least in my mind) and has nothing to do with stone age or prehistory but rather the 20th century; a pin or a brooch.



The head is ca 2, 5 x 1, 5 cm and has originally been deep blue around the edges and the boxes are likely to have been gilded bronze or possibly green.

I’ll be back with some pictures of a rock with great rock art from Gota Alv dal.
