Autumn Dawn


Now autumn is here we are being treated to those dewy, misty sharp mornings once again. This week I couldn't help but stop and take a few pics. I love the world at dawn, it is just so desolate and beautiful.

Very, very beautiful and hear-wrenching.

That was meant to be 'heart' wrenching. I'm trying to think what 'hear-wrenching' might be like. But, since I'm leaving another comment - I'm so pleased to know of your lovely blog. Thank you for becoming a follower of Esther's Boring Garden Blog.

I'd be interested to know about your work - what is an Environmental Archaeologist? You mention your company (in relation to the Saxon Hoard). What is it and what does it do?

I expect if I read further and further back through your posts I'd find the answers, so I'm cheating by asking but . . .

Lovely photos I peek out at the mists and fog in the early hours and then creep back to bed, my husband comes back from walking the dog and says how beautiful it is but too late I missed it all again.

Hi Velo, it is very green, but not that warm right now, there is a definite autumnal chill in the air this week.

Joanne, If I had the chance I would sneak back under the duvet too, it is beautiful, but oh so early! I've been telling myself all weekend to get up and take some pictures of the dew on the spiders webs, i just haven't quite made it out from under the duvet.

Hi Esther,
I wrote a little about myself in my first blog post back in May http://talesfromtumbledownfarm.blogspot.com/2009/05/beginning.html

I work for a large commercial archaeological company. Whenever you seen a large road scheme underway or a building site, you will not doubt if you investigate further find a few archaeologists in flash jackets and hard hard hats down a muddy hole.

Environmental Archaeology seeks to reconstruct past environments and diets by investigating environmental remains such as pollen, beetles, snails, plant macro-fossils and animal bones. I really must try and do a blog on it at some point, it's quite hard to explain in a few lines!

RO :o)

Just realised that the EH guidelines on Enviromental Archaeology are available online for anyone that is curious http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/upload/pdf/cfa_environmental.pdf?1254133309

Thanks enormously for the information and for the link. I've sent for a print copy of the guidelines leaflet because it looks so interesting.
