On the 11th Day of Christmas…

The competition gave to me …

a dig team in the office,

          an icy Roscommon Castle, a Temple to Saturn, Christmas jumpers in the lab, a snowy Silbury Hill, two ‘geofizzing’ students, a  snow covered Castle Hill, a  sweeping  digger  in  the snow,  a  frosty  Grimspound,   a  Lewis  chess  piece,  and  a  snow capped Avebury.

These photos were submitted by the team from Wessex Archaeology Scotland. It looks there was partaking of mulled wine somewhere along the way!
