Apologies for the sparse communication in this period. We kept expecting to have news of a trip ... and then, of course, Katherine had to head back to U Chicago. She just missed an opportunity to do some work directly with the OI there, but is working on the Hittite Dictionary project between classes. We have learned to be patient and persistent over the three years we have been working on this as EVPF.
The EVPF Board continues to cover the costs of these interim projects. We will solicit and build more donations to support the next phases and projects after the current reports are finally complete and the next Historic Scotland approval (SMC) is granted. Designing signage is likely the next major step. Unfortunately, I haven't made more progress on the 3d modeling of the tower due to time limitations, but will get back to that when time permits.
As we have said, we are in this for the long run!
Thanks for your support!
