Heres one for you Steve!

the potential is enormous! this link leads you to Jerash in Jordan, and the entry for the site... I am half tempted to put on all the sites we found!



Another day another WSI?

This is a very exciting resource and resulted in much time spent surfing it this afternoon. I was shocked to discover that no-one had noticed Maiden Castle so I put that on. However all the palaeochannels around Stonehenge (noted for its 'Wiccans, naturists and other assorted hippies!') show up very nicely.

Oh yes... one chariot track... Never finished by the ROmans.. (part of a big building programme for trajan.. So now the circus is actually being used for the purpose.. 2000 years late (sounds like a British Olympic Bid !) They also have Roman troops (a half century) perfoming troop movements.. nice and gladiators.. and chariots.... oooohh its tooooooo exciting.. will be uploading a video soon to You Tube..

Sad but true... I got over excited about it!

That's pretty cool - liked the chariots, and also the centurion with a microphone! but for sheer drama your narration on the Hinterland survey wins hands down!Big GrinGood tomb though. Nice sounding project, too.
