Summary: An archaeological excavation unearths ancient Celtic secrets... but were they better left buried?
The Red Man
We began to excavate there almost exactly two years ago. Today, I am the only one left.
At first, nothing about the dig seemed unusual. We were a small team largely augmented by students from the university. Only Ash, Nat and I had any real archaeological experience of major sites, and none of us could possibly have predicted what we would find.
It started as a simple exercise; in an area already known to have rich deposits of Celtic and Iron Age artefacts, our task was to scour the thick, fractured mud and swell the ranks of existing samples. Our bosses expected mainly small items—the kind of thing ancient people might have tossed into sacred pools or brooks, the gateways between worlds, in the hope of benediction, salvation or interce

Anna Reith
Artist | Professional | Literature

Writer, editor, artist, runner with scissors... confirmed dabbler in too many things.

Aside from writing, my main artistic fiddlings are stock image manipulations and cover art designs, and - recently - adventures in 3D render art, which I'm finding it tremendous fun to use as a base for expanding my 2D skills with digi painting. I also mess around with everything from pencils to oils to textiles, but I doubt much of that will crop up here.

Over the past year, I've also been suckered into the Dragon Age fandom, so - fantasy art being a long-time love - you'll no doubt see some of that.

You can view my website here. For my fanfic, further links to my original writing, and other assorted ramblings, please feel free to check out my personal blog:
