VERA, blogs, and beyond

I'm one of the co-Investigators on the VERA project:
The Virtual Research Environment for Archaeology (VERA) project aims to produce a fully-fledged virtual research environment for the archaeological community. It will address user needs, enhancing the means of efficiently documenting archaeological excavation and its associated finds, and create a suitable Web portal that provides enhanced tools for the user community.
Things on the blog, based at the dig on Roman Silchester, have been pretty interesting of late, detailing how to deal with new technology in the field, and the rain. How can you not like a post titled Moving Out and Blowing Up the Generator?

When I was at the dig a few weeks ago, I took some photos, available here. The one above is my favourite. Others seem to think so too - it even got featured somehow on
