Terry Courtney in visionary pose ...

Posted by Picasa
If you saw a man these days standing like this you would immediately assume without a second's further reflection that he was talking on a mobile phone. But this picture of Terry Courtney was taken by Rebecca Chambers in August 1986 so he must either be having a visionary moment in which he foreshadowed the 'man speaking on a mobile phone' pose or be scratching his left ear. Splendid newish photographic tower in the background. C-H-M has been trying to work out where on the hill this cutting was but has not succeeded in figuring it out yet. Anyone remember? Update: Professor Dixon writes: "TWC scratching ear at the side of one of the Dark Age houses in the NT cutting to the S of the rampart in 1986, and I think that I can see my boots going up the ladder at the top... Great recipes. Keep smiling." As long as I'm cooking, I'm smiling, Phil.

I believe that's me looking up at Phil from behind the tower. I don't know who that is next to me though.

I think it is where the Dark Age huts were found up against the rampart. But I could be wrong, it has been known.
