Today Gary wants the Multi-Period Mapping team in the lab to work on our project. At first, I’m a little disappointed given how close I am to digging out “My Thing”, but off I go.
We write a project definition, get all the video edited, add some still photography, and digitize all the maps from last years work. We get it all up on our wiki and call it a day. (You can see it at http://humanitieslab.stanford.edu/Binchester/456 . We have a LONG way to go, but it’s a start.)
We get back to the house about the time the rest of the team returns from the site. They are NOT happy. While there has only been a little rain, it has been cold and very windy and everyone is chilled to the bone. They are envious of us who have spent the day in lab, out of the weather.
For the first time in a couple of nights I decide to have dinner at St. Chad’s. A big mistake. The veggie option is Mushroom Stroganoff and it is simply disgusting. The Stroganoff is basically grey glop that congeals the moment it leaves the steam table.
