I know for a start that there will be quite a few people asking "what's a blog?"
Blog is a term taken from a shortening of the term weB LOG. A web log is a internet version of the good old diary, they allow people to post regular bits of information up on the web for everyone to see - quickly and extremely easily.
The idea for using them for this project is to allow some of the archaeologists to post their thoughts and findings on here as the excavations progress at the Amphitheatre site.
This will hopefully allow for more frequent and up to date news being published than we are currently able to provide.
As you wait for the first posts have a look at the archaeologists at work via our live webcam
