Hey, I am based at the Archaeology Department at Lampeter University.
Dowsing versus geophysics....
- The magnetometer broke on the first day. Thirty eager diggers ready to de-turf - but where? We resorted to dowsing that worked superbly and we managed to locate the ditched enclosures from last year. Turned out to be bang-on. Did we really need to spend £10,000 on complex, high-tech machinery after all?
… the planets are in alignment, the runes are cast, the seaweed is wet, the wheelbarrows are on site. We are going to break new ground and make great discoveries. On Tuesday. Stay tuned.
