Hello and welcome to the main site hub. Picture links are below, full drop-down menu above. (Hover over the heading and the sub-menu will appear. Then click on whatever you want to read.) I'm Dr Eleanor Scott and I write primarily about archaeology and history, as well as about inclusive practice (including food!) for archaeological volunteers, plus a bit about my fling with the murky world of Lib Dem politics. I also write about surviving urban life, eg growing food and helping wildlife.
Latest News as of February 2019 - three short(ish) books will be available later in 2019 via this site at very low cost, which will help to run the website (which remains Open Access and advert-free). They are on Gertrude Bell; and the Archaeology of Children; and Inclusive Food Practice on Digs and Field Trips. I’m also planning to publish an updated shortened version of my PhD thesis on Roman villas in Britain.
This is my own website, with no external commercial interests or adverts. It features an Archaeology Blog, Open Access articles, and some previously unpublished papers. The material is varied and includes Roman Britain, the classical world, infanticide, and Gertrude Bell. (I've now separated out a Dig Food Blog from the main Archaeology Blog.) I also have a Political Blog here about my foray into politics - scroll down below Archaeology - and I also write a bit about Urban Life eg growing stuff, using and not wasting food, and supporting city wildlife and urban bio-diversity. Thanks for reading.

You can contact me here. I'm not providing a comments facility on the website, as I want to focus on creating and uploading new content and not firefighting some of the stuff which is sadly prevalent these days online.
