I´m giving Tamworth timehikes it´s very own souvenir section, which gives me a chance to show my artistic dabblings or ideas on tamworth timehike themes, tongue in cheek style or not.
Here´s the first installment for the Tamworth Timehikes souvenir shop:
Archaeological framed section
Archaeologists use vertical cross sections to understand the stratigraphy and interpret the development of the studied area over time.
archaeologists preparing your own section picture
Why not have your own slice of stratigraphy from your own backgarden, frame it and put it on your wall. Tell the story of the land beneath you with the help of some dirt on a wall. Archaeologists with time on their hands could fill in the details, do a bit of research yourself or simply make it up. Usually the procedure is to use a mixture of all of these.
The above section is taken from a rubbish photo I took of an earth bank bordering a stream next to the river Anker. I´ve labelled it with possible stories of events related with the section mostly made up, getting older the further down on the section, all wrapped up in a fetching gold frame, you get the gist.
Above is a better looking section from a real archaeology excavation. You can create your own section by cutting a section in your garden, slicing it and putting it between two glass/plastic frames label it and hey presto ready to put on the wall( I haven´t worked out the practical details yet)
The frame is optional, here I´ve gone for a rococo style frame.
