16. Friday 16th July

Despite another ominous weather forecast, Roger, ever the optimist, insisted we "go up the hill". Sure enough the heavens opened and everybody crowded into the 2 tents, with the exception of Don, who appeared to like standing in the torrential rain. The time slipped by as various anecdotes were related by Roger.

Around midday we had a bedraggled visitor in the shape of Jennifer, a Masters student from York, who is reporting on the bone assemblage from CHW.

After a delayed and leisurely lunch the skies did indeed brighten and we set to work continuing with planning, the test pits and DM. 4:30 saw the departure of the bulk of the Newcastle students and the site certainly seem a lot quieter with their absence.

Jane, Debbie and Alan also sadly said goodbye to CHW and Michelle for 2010
