Cynthia was presenting interesting work on tracing what people were doing with their pots and whether they were making dairy products or not: she had previously showed some of her experimental work looking at vegetable v dairy/meat lipid absorbtion into pottery at the Experimental Archaeology Conference UK.
Today the ISA team have been out and about, with the various excursions, visiting Ramoil, Antwerp, Ghent and Leuven
As is traditional now at ISA, Wednesday morning’s papers are followed by excursion(s). I enjoyed a very relaxing afternoon in the amazingly beautiful town of Leuven, which after the hectic first two days was rather a relief!
Drinking coffee and having a little chill out time in Leuven whilst my colleagues tour the town.
By the evening everyone had returned to Leuven, and after some naps and relaxing, we enjoyed some of the excellent local food. Anyone wandering through the town would have seen many groups of archaeologists scattered across the bars and restaurants!
