Mot en åpen fortid? Åpen arkeologi - på ulike vis. Herdis Hølleland på vegne av Digging Perspectives og Kulturhistorisk museum, UiO. To land - en tanke. Arkeologi - tradisjonelt en lukket prosess for eksperter. Arkeologiske rapporter er ofte ugjennomtrengelig materie for ikke-innvidde.

Studenter og læring:
After Team A-Force (members include Stevie aka. Frankie, Kate Gizzle and Matt) had blitzed their original test pit in square B3, Kate and I did a geophysical survey on two squares that seemed to contain a high proportion of limestone that had been churned up by the plough. The Andy Machine instructed us as how to use the resistivity machine and to which Kate took an immediate shine, mainly because she has some seriously butch arms and could handle the pressure. I was condemned to setting the two metre wide geophiz paths whilst Kate heckled me as being a lesser being. Quite possibly the highlight of our geophysical adventure was me moving the A-Forcemobile and then listening to our enlightened supervisor hark on about how tempted he had been to buy a gun turret for the top of it, we shifted around nervously for a few minutes but thankfully the psychopath didn’t catch on and an awkward situation was averted.
We are pleased to report that the experience wasn’t entirely futile and we did in fact learn a lot about the geophysical process, although at times Kate struggled to maintain a 25cm gap next to the line she was following due to her over-enthusiasm, partially stemming from Matt’s comedy genius and Kate needing a whiz. Thistles proved to be a painful obstacle in the quest for archaeological knowledge but the A-Force was always going to be equal to the challenge and tackled the issue by not plotting any of the grassy areas in the square, some may question this as cowardice but we of the A-Force prefer to claim that our superior intelligence was demonstrated by such an action.
