Hell-Fire Club interviews with BBC

I've been away with work and research, but still super enthused about the Hell-Fire Clubs! The media types quite like the story as there are lots of spooky myths relating to the club sites.

Fun fieldwork with local Bristol school

We hopped over to Two Mile Hill School yesterday to do a spot of GPR and soil analysis, thanks to the team of Dept. volunteers - 2 first years, 1 second year, another PhD student Henry Webber, and our field tech. Phil Rowe.

It links into Bristol European Capital plans for planting and redesign of the space. Read the press release, and I'll post more info in future.

Almost done

The sands of time are slippery feckers. I haven't posted since November, and for good reason. It's been PhD writing season, the last hurdle before the final hurrah. This past month gave me the final piece of data I needed (laser scan outputs in a usable format), so I got my paperwork in order. Boom - submission mid next month, over 7 months early. I can't wait for the viva to be over. Whatever corrections come my way, I'll be happy. My topic is still a source of joy, but a part time PhD is a terribly long slog that needs to end. The sooner the better.

Plus, I don't like to post without pictures, so have some lovely pics of my quick trip to relaxy Lanzarote. Lots of caves and cocktails, great place.
