2. Finds Team Training day - 28 June 2010

On 28 June, members of the Chapel House Wood Finds Management Team gathered on site for training on the new total station, which will replace the beloved (!) old manual system of offsets and triangulation by tape measure.

Roger was extremely patient - as always - with us as we struggled through our experiential learning sessions.

While each group had a go familiarising themselves with Bob (our affectionate nickname for the total station, which has the brand name of "The Builder", because it was designed for use on construction sites), the others were putting up the two ex-army tents - another interesting learning exercise!! Let's hope they won't need to be tested in stormy weather as previous tents have been.

The resident blackbird was rather excited to see us back up on site - every year he eagerly hops around the dig waiting for all those juicy worms to be dug up and thrown out for him to collect.
