Great Excavations
Have you taken part in an excavation that you consider 'great'?

Perhaps the archaeology was the best you've ever worked on.
Maybe you worked for an inspirational site director or supervisor?
Were you introduced to a new and innovative technique that changed the way you work?

Was the atmosphere amongst the team the best you've ever known?
Did you simply just have the best parties?!

Or, conversely, was it remarkable because it was actually truly awful?

I am currently preparing a paper for John Schofield's "Great Excavations" session at the IFA conference in April, and I'd love to hear people's stories and thoughts on what makes an excavation 'great' from the perspective of those on the ground.

Feel free to respond to me off-list if you'd rather keep your
reminiscenses private!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes, Paul Everill
