In the summer of 2006 I took a one-way flight to Edinburgh with my bicycle. I had made arrangments to join the 'Roman Gask Project' archaeological dig near to Stirling as a volunteer digger. The Roman Gask Project is overseen by Dr David Woolliscroft and Dr Birgitta Hoffman of the University of liverpool.
I was with the dig for five days. We camped at a farm near to the dig site. I spent my time labouring in a long trench revealing the profile of a Roman defensive ditch. A the end of the dig we all went to an Indian Restaurant in Stirling for a buffet meal.
I then cycled home to Cheshire over 10 days.
