Anyone who's marking down the days on the Calender and annoying their other half may want to consider buying a new one to mark the passing of the seasons. Perhaps the trust could try out this money raising idea? Get chest waxing Kev!

Well, if we want people to pay us not to do it it may be a good idea.....

I think I have posted this one before, but the discussion of a saucy archeology calender made me remember it....

Mr. January?

Snowglobe I have that marvelous pic of you that would be perfect for Mr. February. But having seen your photographic skills I am treading carefully.....I fear retaliation.

I'm wondering if it involves me finding a rare roman stone carved into the shape of Africa? Weather permitting looking forward to a visit next week to see the site in winter. The weeks are flying by to the start of the season, also looking forward to Justin's first text of the season and those digger posted photos.

I'll let the romans select Mr May for the Calender as found on Barcombe Hill above the fort. for new diggers its well worth the effort to reach the summit and the great views of the site. third photo of said view.

Also a photo of diggers from May 2011 (including Badger) enjoying the weather I hope we'll get this year?
