Hi All,
I'm in Ireland again just now...been here a week.
I'm off on my fieldwork on Sunday. You may remember I'm going to Bulgaria for 2 weeks on an archaeology course, followed immediately by 3 weeks internship at the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara.

It's been months of waiting, but it's finally here!

Also, I've finished the final draft of the PhD! Final word count 110,662 words....plus andother 23,489 in appendices. Phew. Almost 5 years (albeit part-time) work. The proof copy has been proof-read, corrected and spiral-bound and awaits postage to my supervising professor tomorrow.
I've worked 14 hour days all this past week to finish it before going on fieldwork; I'm exhausted but happy.
I know it will come back from my professor with all kinds of suggestions for improvement, but I'll deal with that when I get back in October.
I get to have one rest day tomorrow before travelling all day sunday to get to Emona, Bulgaria. Have to take a 1 hour long train journey to Belfast, then a 2 hour bus journey from Belfast -> Dublin airport, then a 3hour flight to Burgas, followed by a 1.5 hourr transfer by mini-cab with 2 other course participants to get to Emona village.
I'm so excited!

I'll update when I can but I'm told that internet is a bit patchy, as Emona is kindof remote. I have no idea what the situation will be in Sozopol the week after, or Ankara itself.

In chicken updates, nothing new to report. Ingrid and Greta are happy and well, laying every day and romping around in the garden. I'll try to get a photo or two tomorrow.

Hope you are all well, lovely F list! I'll try to catch up on wat everyone's been up to...........I've been such a hermit the last month or so!
