Tales of a volunteer excavator at Vindolanda Roman fort
Saturday, May 15, 2010
Preparations for the trip all seem to be in place, but a deep thigh bruise picked up in a soccer game last weekend is causing me some serious discomfort, six days later. Half of my right thigh is various shades of purple, yellow and green after a deliberate late tackle by a Brimfield defender. Hopefully the remaining week will see the muscle stiffness dissipate, because if the digging started now it would be next to impossible. The silver lining is that I get to watch the Monaco Grand Prix first thing tomorrow morning; no more football for me until after Vindolanda.
