This month my poem, Survival Skills, is published in The Commonline Journal. It’s an archaeology-themed poem that I wrote from a memory of my undergraduate fieldwork study days. More of my archaeology-themed poems will be published in my debut pamphlet, A Model Archaeologist (available from my publisher Eyewear Publishing and from my online store Meandi Books), forthcoming in June 2015.

Did I ever have to use any of the techniques I wrote about in Survival Skills? Luckily not, though I had to rely on instinct on one or two occasions such as a narrow escape from my trench when the concrete truck started filling the pits and fun memories of sinking into glue-like mud!
