Archaeology: Job, Hobby…Life

As a person who is blogging about my life in archaeology I can totally admit that I have a problem… archaeology is practically my whole life.

I go to work 6 days a week (only 6 days a week at the moment, when I leave London it will be back to Mon-Fri) but when I am away from work, and should therefore be closing my mind to all things archaeological.. it still creeps in there.

So much to see and so little time!

I take days off work and head off to monuments. I used to do the same as a student.

I spend some of my free time writing this, so I get to yabber on about archaeology and every now and then I try to be productive and go through old papers from university to sort the wheat from the chaff and get them into some sort of article shape.

I think it’s time to say…. I need to get a life 🙂
