The excavation in Rissne outside of Stockholm continues and soon week three will be finsihed. I’ve gotten a prolongation of my employment at Arkeologikonsult until December the 17th so there are several days of archaeology left this season, in other words this is getting to be a real winter dig.
The last few days have been physically hard as it’s been cold, windy and quite damp. The cold in itself does not pose that big of a problem but snow and or rain makes it more difficult to interpret layers and structures in the earth and the wind is what really makes it cold. It seems we’ll be digging in tents the last few weeks which will make it a lot easier, I hope.
Well it’s just to hang in there and do the best of a difficult situation – but I can tell you a sleep like a pup every night and wake up with stiff limbs and muscles.
Only one day left this week, thank God for weekends, I need to rest!
