The go ahead has been given

Things are coming into place now. My sample has been accepted and I can soon start the skeletal examinations and the sample taking. I will start my work with the skeletons on Monday 3rd June. I am relieved everything seems to be working out nicely and it should be nice to spend some time in Trondheim.

I’m looking forward to getting out of the office for a few weeks to do some practical work. After all, it is the examination of the skeletons and collection of data, as well as the collection of samples for the DNA and isotope analyses which form the basis for my research. It is the empirical data which distinguishes scientific research from storytelling, and being allowed to collect this data and later analyse and synthesise it, excites me.
