Munsell Charts
#41
I think that,for soil descriptions we will have to rely on the person filling out the context sheet and what they phsyically 'see' in front of them-but that's where experience comes in, so as to take into account that the 'colour' could need more than just 'brown' and could have secondary colours affecting what the description should be.
Isn't a Pixel a creature whose father was a Pixie and its mother an Elf????

Yesterday I realised all the food in the canteen could be described using the munsell soil chart. My curry was 10YR 2/2.
Mmm.

Thunder rolled. ... It rolled a six.

One place I worked did at one point use coloured pencils in place of hatches for differnet inclusions (red for brick/tile, yellow for mortar, blue for imported stone and green for chalk)

I too worked on a site in the early 80s where we had what looked like conventional coloured pencils, but when you licked the end they turned into 'watercolour' pencils. Made by a French company I think....

I am not even going to think about the damage to my health licking coloured pencils on London building sites has done....

Actually there is a technology which is even older....Less than 10 years ago, I worked on a site in the southern United States for a well known American museum. After a while I was a little concerned that we were leaving sections all over the place but no-one was drawing them. The site director assured me that all was well. Last week of the excavation a guy turned up with an easel and a set of watercolours and recorded the sections in much the same way that John Constable might have.

And how many of us would have quite liked to have the painting afterwards...

I do remember seeing a section somewhere that had been covered with some rubbery-plastic stuff to preserve its face. I will have to have a think about where it was. This was a real section, not a faked museum one.

There was a guy at MoLAS who experimented with this in the 90s. Can't remember whether it were successful, but he did gain the nickname 'Rubber Ron'.....
