Goldingham Hall Dig Day Five 31.05.14

Today was yet another brilliant day on site at Goldingham Hall, Bulmer. As today was the last full day of excavating on site the focus was to try and reach conclusions on the features we’ve been diligently excavating over this weekend and last. We were joined by Cat Ranson of Access Cambridge Archaeology whose opinion and supervision were invaluable.

Trench A

Trench A was again a hive of activity on various features, producing some exciting finds.
