War Ditches is being printed off as I write! The background research of this Iron Age Hillfort site has taken me about a year to do, as with any research I feel there is still lots and lots more that can be done but alas, time and money have long since run out and above all that my family would like their home back and their mum! The house has truely turned into a tip over this last week of finishing off the writing, editing and proof reading - this is due partly to it being summer holidays and the need to try and amuse my 8 year old in a way that meant I could still get the work done, I simply adopted a policy of 'sod the housework' and I will be dealing with the consequences of that in the morning!!!
However, I am very pleased with the work I have done and will be opening a little bottle of champagne when I get home from handing it in :)
I will continue the remaining research in my own time and hope to have the book about the site out by next summer but the pressure will now be off and I can relax to some degree. We have lots of fantastic plans coming up over the next few months and you'll see a great deal added to both CCAN and to History Pin, so watch out for news here!
