We’re sorry. We’re very sorry indeed. In fact, if you could see our faces right now, they would probably look a little something like this:
A little over a month ago now, we brought this blog back from the dead and for about a two-week period gave you, our devoted readers, a fair chunk of fresh content (albeit from last field season). And then we just up and went all incommunicado after the first week of July. And for that we apologize.
The thing is, right after Canada Day, our field season kicked into high gear, and has remained there for the past month. Because of that, we’ve had to place blogging on the shelf for a little while. And now we’re (hopefully) going to make up for it. While our field season is by no means over, with the rest of August and some of September yet to play out, we are going to attempt to make a concerted effort to get some new material posted. And when I say new, I mean stuff that’s been happening this year. We won’t make you wait so long this time. Pinky swear.
I won’t spill the beans here, but I will say that there should be some good posts coming your way soon, including an update on our second field season at Orwell Corner, an investigation of a shipwreck, and a brief (and perhaps somewhat inglorious) return to Pointe-aux-Vieux, with a few odds and ends tossed in along the way. I might even start harassing some of our other crew members to provide us with their own commentary on the field season, and their research. We’ll see how it goes.
Well, I guess that’s it for the moment. See you guys in the next post!
P.S. – About the title: As I’m sure you know, AWOL is an acronym for Absent Without Leave; however, I’ve also decided that it can stand for Archaeologists Will Occasionally Lag (when it comes to writing). It kindasorta works.
