Tales of a volunteer excavator at Vindolanda Roman fort
Monday, May 10, 2010
Just 10 days to go now before I leave. Getting excited to see family, and start digging, but the volcano-that-appears-to-have-no-name-judging-by-news-reports, Eyjafjallajoekull, remains literally a dark cloud on the horizon. The eruption is not as violent as it was when it first erupted back in mid-April, but if the wind is in the wrong direction it's still closing airports. Keeping a daily watch on the Icelandic Met Office website, which has a page giving all the latest info in English; hopefully I'll be lucky...
