Return to the Massif Central

Just a very quick post to say I'm officially back from maternity leave, and have rolled straight into fieldwork! I'm back in the Haute-Loire region for a month. We will be starting excavations at the Saint-Pierre-Eynac silcrete source, which is exciting. I'm anticipating a LOT of stone to come up, but the question will be how much is humanly-worked, and whether there is any identifiable stratigraphy present. I'm really hoping I can convince the students with us that washing lithics is super-fun, as I don't fancy doing another few thousand like last year...
So until I have some new posts, which should hopefully be soon, here's a nice photo from summer 2013- here's hoping for more magnificent cloud-scapes in 2014!
