Another couple of busy days on the dig site. Most interesting for me, the great excitement when a Cattle jaw was found in the terminal/stone socket.  Once again the wooden Rhynie Man Lookie-likie came out and prove to be a very good likeness. Thank you to the @NorthernPicts for the photo – have a look out for them on Twitter and Facebook for more updates and follow the #REAP blog here.

The number of diggers more than doubled today with the primary school’s annual visit to the dig site.  The children were met with a huge container full of spoil to sift through and find lots of interesting things.  They were also interviewed by Fiona Stalker, radio presenter from BBC Radio Scotland – have a look out for the photos on the Northern Picts facebook page, here’s a sneak peek of one of our young at heart local volunteers getting involved.

Follow me here and on Twitter @therhynieman to find out what I’ve been up to and what I’m doing now.  As I’m currently based in Aberdeenshire Council’s Headquarter Building, Woodhill House in Aberdeen, I am being ably assisted by my scout, messenger and technical assistant, Anne Murray a creative facilitator and artist.

I've not had so much attention in a long time!

I miss my friends in Rhynie, but until there is somewhere safe for me to return to I will just have to hear the news Anne brings me about what’s going on and what she’s found out about me.

If you have any information about me, have visited me over the past 37 years in Aberdeen or met me in Rhynie when I was there for 10 years, I’d love to hear from you, see photos and share stories.  Get in touch at therhynieman at gmail dot com (therhynieman@gmail.com)

So for now, I’m blogging off and look forward to learning more in the next few months.
