Ghosts.

Just a brief note to say I’m headed off to the battlefield of Culloden for a week to do some conservation work for the NTS, survey the field and preserve its countenance, and seek out burial cairns and standing stones in the Nairn valley late at night…

More info on the site here and the context of the rehabilitation work is here.

My best to all and we’ll be back in touch after 24 April. I’ll have my Mac with me, so I might nip into a café and check mail and the like…

    Oooh, being at Drumossie for the anniversary… (so jealous!) Okay, once I get to Edinburgh, you're going to introduce me to some of these people, right?
    Am I weird for always having 17th April in my calendar?

    Yes, you are…especially because the battle was on the 16th.
    That's why you're the archaeologist and I'm the historian.
    🙂
    But really, I want to take a quick moment to tell you how proud I am that you're on your way and kicking ass after a rough start. If I could have chosen another profession, I'd be following you into the trenches, my brother. And I have some great stories about the past week that will surely float your boat; and I can't wait to hear about your course in more detail…

    D'OH!! I knew that… and it actually is labeled correctly on my calendar.
    That's why I'm a blonde, really.
    Heh, thanks. I'm not sure whose ass will get kicked this semester… I haven't delved into my sources very much this semester, and finals are looming nigh. I have only two papers this semester, as opposed to the four from last semester, so it shouldn't be too painful.
    But thanks for the words of confidence!!
