For the archaeologists out there..

Viking HoardThey’re not likely to find a rare Viking-era hoard of silver coins of Arab origin, circa AD850, like these Swedish archaeologists. Nor any Viking-era hoards. And probably not coprolites.. [fixed lnk] But the archaeologists digging at Stonehenge are already excited. It is the first dig there for more than four decades, and they’ve only just got through the backfill of those previous digs. ANYhoo.. The dig is scheduled to continue until 11 April and there may be a Timewatch programme to follow in the autumn. The companion website has daily updates, messageboard, and video clips. Ignore the modern-day supernaturalists. And, yes, I know Newgrange is believed to be older. But it’s all relevant..
