I have a lot to tell you guys since my last post, so I’m going to back-track a little bit and give you the 411 on all the things that I’ve done since.
To start, the most exciting non-Roman related thing I’ve done was feed two baby sheep that currently live just outside my cottage. I believe their names are Ben and Molly, and I’m already hopelessly in love with them!
Now back to the Romans! On Tuesday-Wednesday the whole crew went out and started preparation in the North field (de-turfing and all that jazz).
On to the next day! We went though all of the amazing museums and sites that pepper the entire area that we’re currently living around. We saw the stores of the Corbridge Museum, so amazing! It’s a great opportunity when you are able to go behind the scenes of any museum, but with this one we were able to actually touch the artefacts and examine them ourselves (with the gloves of course).
Lastly, I had my presentation at Brocolitia Mithreaeum today! It is so exciting to finally see the building that I have been studying and researching for since forever. I think my presentation went well!
