Crickley Hill postholes spoil you for life ...

Posted by Picasa
Andrew Powell fears this photo may not be rivetting, but I think he undersells it: plainly it is a thing of beauty: "I found this photo of a posthole, I imagine from a 1972 longhouse. I may have taken the photo to record my excavation of my first ever posthole, well supervised in the process, I remember, by Chris Gingell. Of course, Crickley Hill postholes spoil you for life and I have never come across the like since, I remember being amazed by the precision with which the limestone seemed to have been sliced through like butter." Top class digger's crumpet, if you ask me.
