Experimental archaeology 6: a watched pot never fires ...

Posted by Picasa
Waiting for it to happen: Steve Vaughan, Nick Snashall and Ros Cleal hang about, in Steve's case hopping from foot to foot while pouring tea from his mug on the ground behind him, whilst waiting for the pots to fire.  This is the latest in the 1988 or 1989 series showing various experiments.  Nick seems to be half way through a sandwich to pass the time and Ros seems to be sucking a lemon.  I suppose it may just be that the colours are fading in Dr Phillpotts's original photo and it's an orange ... perhaps Ros can enlighten us?
