Aerial view of f18184 site in area 105

Last year work had to be stopped because it was the end of the field season. We have gone back to this site to complete the work here. We took a quick aerial shot of the excavation before work begun,  to compare the situation of the site now with how we left it last year using a kite expertly propelled by Louise with a camera suspended from it.

 ‘That the camera will drop! Louise seems to exclaim as the kite bearing the camera gets loose while on course

I will post some additional aerial images in due course when we get the kite in the air again.
