Christo working at Hauxley?

Visiting the Ponteland hide at Hauxley over the last two weekends it is obvious something is going on in the dunes.
Is it the artist Christo and Jeanne-Claude famous for wrapping the Riechstag and Pont Neuf Bridge along with numerous other installations across the world.
Or does someone just like big sandcastles? No it's archaeologists looking for a pre-historic cemetery. Here's the explanation.
Nice to see the Wildlife Trust promoting a bit of diversity and also a nod of respect to Mick Aston of Time Team who passed away this week. I thought Channel Four had shot themselves in the foot by cancelling the series but now it seems appropriate that a line has been drawn in the sand.
