The wind howled but the children didn’t

It was a hectic day at the hillfort yesterday. First to arrive were the wonderful children of Gillamoor Primary School. They took a flying visit of the site, guided by our very own Dominic Powlesland. They peered into trenches, stood on top of the barrow, marvelled at crop marks, mimicked the line of the rampart and shivered as the wind blew and the clouds swirled above. I do hope their lovely Headteacher lets them out again this year! It was a pleasure to have them.

Second to arrive was Geoff. He filmed a plenty using the High Cam…a camera on a hydraulic lift on the back of his landrover which shoots up 50 feet into the air!¬†Dominic was even persuaded to wear his red trousers especially for the occasion to add a splash of colour to an otherwise grey day. It will be sometime before the video footage will be ready and possibility sometime more before we decide exactly what to do with it. So, watch this space.
