Photographs from the German Excavation

29 Aug

Well I’ve just got back to the UK today after 6 wonderful weeks on placement at Landesamt fur denkmalspfliege und Archaeologie Sachsen Anhalt, which was based in the Sachsen Anhalt state capital of Magdeburg, in Germany.  I’ll do a full write up later in the week, but for now enjoy some photos!

The Domersleben Site

    Looks like you had a great trip over there mate, glad you enjoyed Berlin as much as I did, ’tis a good city with plenty of places to eat (and drink!) Hope you tried the currywurst, I didn’t, and have regretted it ever since…

      Cheers Jamie! I had a great time, and I love Berlin! Unfortunately I didn’t try the currywurst I’m afraid… We shall have to go back! I hear you are off to Vienna very soon. I haven’t seen your blog before, its duly linked now, I still need to improve the graphics a bit on mine.

    Thanks, I’ll return the link!

    Yeah, I’m off to Vienna on Sunday, currently got the hits of Falco playing thanks to Spotify. I’m a bit surprised I don’t own them on CD as he’s posthumously awesome!

        Get the 8-minute version of “Rock Me Amadeus” if you can, it’s one of my guilty pleasures – the synthy-string near the end is brilliant, if you love 80s music, that is 🙂
