Lumps, Bumps and Mounds

Back on the road again! Any excuse to see how good my new Lowepro camera rucksack is. The verdict? Absolutely brilliant. I hardly knew I was carrying around 10kgs of stuff and with the one climb I had to reach my last site - 70m up a near vertical hillside - I was very glad of it.

The trip was concentrating on revisiting a couple of sites, but I also wanted to reach one that's stayed out of my grasp up until now. I spent a lot of time wondering around Piperstown as well, trying to locate where they excavated in the 1960s. I think I may have found one of the hearths, but can't be certain. I couldn't find anything else to confirm it. The vegitation cover in the vicinity certainly looked different so it is possible that it had been disturbed at some time. What I'd really like is to hear from anyone who knows where the excavations took place.
