A mostly archaeological-related blog, but I also occasionally post photographs, wildlife/conservation related things, and other stuff I find interesting and/or important. A bit of variety's good for you!
Shots in and around Kailahun, Sierra Leone where the worst Ebola outbreak ever recorded continues unabated. The latest bad news is that the lead doctor at the largest government-run Ebola isolation ward has now also come down with the disease.
Just an explanation as to why I’m so quiet - and will will be so quiet - until after August 3rd. Currently doing fieldwork 9-5 and 7/7 days a week, but also moving house and job-hunting in the spare time I have in the evenings… yes, haha, it’s as tiring as it sounds! I’ll try post interesting things about the dig I’m on every now and then, but otherwise please excuse this interruption to your regular prettysweetlemons tumblr schedule.

I’m turning 23 tomorrow, and I’ve now been graduated a whole year, so I have to write about it because that’s the kind of thing you do when you turn a whole year older, right…?

The dragon – just a visual metaphor after all – appears to have a skull.
