Coprolites, Midges and Gale-Force Winds – Digging the Dream!

Now, don’t let the title of this blog post fool you because my return to the Links of Noltland for three weeks of digging last month were an absolute blast! I’d meant to write a post about the dig much sooner than this but unfortunately a combination of hardly having been in Glasgow since my […]

Jarlshof: CGI and Kites with Kieran Baxter

Last summer I was invited to do a little reconstruction work (Viking settlement, medieval farmstead and the Laird’s House) for Kieran Baxter as part of his ambitious Jarlshof Project conducted as part of his masters degree at DJCAD, University of Dundee.
