Quite. This is a good example of tardiness - http://latersilbury.wordpress.com/ while this (presumably by an 'ordinary' yet interested and well-informed member of the public) is far more informative - http://thehword.wordpress.com/2010/08/31/rethinking-silbury/

Does make you wonder doesn't it...

Having a blog from a dig is pretty good as far as I'm concerend . We wouldn't have had either of these 10 years ago . My tardinesss was more like the 30 -60 years wait for excavtion reports that were under beds and are now in some shed in an industrial estate . In some respects having a blog or good web based idescription of a dig could damage the likielhood of a finished report e.g. the Dunragit excavataion which provided a good annual web report but as yet no real in depth written report .
