A fascinating pinhole camera session with photographer Jeremy Webb. Results will be revealed at the next session, when we will be developing the images.
We were joined by the team from the amazing Thames Discovery Programme,
who brought along finds from the inter-tidal zone, the Thames foreshore.
Perhaps they brought archaeological good fortune, because there was a small find, of which more later.
All these photos are by Dr William Rathouse, one of the Thames Team.
And here is Eliott Wragg’s book (with Nathalie Cohen), of which we now have a signed copy. Thanks Eliott!
Another creative writing session with Belona Greenwood, writing and sharing stories of Romans, mysteries and imaginings. Belona is compiling the pieces into a map of the site, and of our experience.
After the session some of us went to Raveningham to meet Sarah Cannell, curator of the Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail. We are thinking of submitting a proposal for a group installation and Sarah showed us the perfect site…..
Burgh Castle Almanac featured on BBC Radio Norfolk’s Jack Jay show on Monday 5th November. The relevant section begins at 55mins into the programme.
Here we are primed for action.

Giorgia Bottinelli at the Castle Museum sent us this image of the etching and map of Burgh Castle that we saw in the museum.
It is clear that the East wall was broken through after at least the late 19th century, given that it is complete in all the art we looked at. Something to ask the archaeologists.

MEN ARE FROM MARS…….
From an early age, the majority of boys are pressured by society, family or peers to grow up fast and be men, even before their teenaged years. Being told they can’t play with dolls or dress up in women’s clothes amongst other things that can be classed as gender stereotyping. Also being taught that they shouldn’t cry and that men are tough and strong, that showing emotions makes you weak. These boys tend to develop into men who struggle with dealing and showing/sharing emotions and this can sometimes factor in to why men struggle with mental health. A recent report made last year showed the highest suicide statistics in the uk were for men aged 40-44, at a rate 3 times higher than women. A surprising amount of people didn’t know that men can also get post natal depression. Usually typical in their early 20’s with their first child, but it can happen any time, just like women do.
