Today saw a small but dedicated team of Kris, Graham and Mike brave the poor weather to survey at Gorhambury. Luckily the weather improved during the day and was pleasant if windy in the afternoon.
I am going to have to start the 2017 season with two apologies. The first apology is to Graham who agreed to come and collect some equipment from my house. Unfortunately, road works and unhelpful workmen led Graham on a mystery tour of Hertfordshire. The second apology is that I am utterly incompetent. With one thing and another we only managed a single grid today, but unfortunately it was a grid we had surveyed in 2015. Aaaaarrrrghhhh. I’ll be grovelling for a while I fear. It does, however, give us a chance to compare the old survey with the today’s, processed with the new software.
There are some interesting comparisons. For example, in Fig. 4 we can clearly see a square block in the middle of the room towards the east. Not sure what that is… but it is very clear. On the other hand, the rooms to the west show better on the old plot than they do on the new one. At the moment I do not know if that is a function of the the data being collected on a different day (it was pretty wet on the surface today which may have limited depth penetration), or a factor of my use of the new software! I’ll have to investigate some more.
Tomorrow we will start something new. I promise…!
