In the summer of 2006 I made my way to Scotland to work as a volunteer digger on the archaeological undertaking called 'The Roman Gask Project'. The dig was west of Stirling and attracted a good crowd. This was my first practical experience of a dig. I found out about it through the web site of the Council for British Archaeology.
I spent 5 days on the dig labouring in a trench with pick, shovel and trowel. The purpose of the trench was to reveal the cross sectional profile of a defensive ditch. No artifacts were found..just the ditch.
