A new post hmmm. This blog seems to be a lot about France and not much about Egypt so here is an update just in case you were wondering what had happened to the archaeology. Season opens on 28th December and will run for about three weeks. We will begin by processing the buckets left over from 2007. These are likely to contain a lot of big bits of storage jar but I am holding out hope that there might be a bit more Cretan cup lurking in the bottom of a bucket. Well, we will see what transpires. How exciting. Our Cretan pottery is one of the oldest pieces ever found in Egypt...hoorah.
As for the picture, well I hope to be doing a bit of snorkeling and diving in my time off. At a balmy 28 Celsius it should be just right for a bit of relaxation after work.
