Photographing and clean up
Today a few members helped to record the trenches with a total station and also photography. This was carried out by Dr Tim Dennis, who was assisted by Jon Oldham, Dave Williams and Aldous Rees.
Corinne and Phil Cox attended and spent the morning cleaning the tea shed and packing away finds and sorting equipment. Thanks to all those who were able to attend today.
Once today’s photos have been processed and amalgamated they will follow in a future blog.
The Goldingham field is littered with struck flint with a wide range of flakes and scrapers being picked up again today. It just goes to show what you can find with a little bit of knowledge. Tim was able to help identify these which further shows that our site has been in use for several millennia.
The flint area found last year was examined on the last day again. It is possible that this could be a wall or a cobbled floor. It has a lot of chalk and burnt clay around the flints.
Cobbled area possible wall or floor
The open day yesterday was once again a great event with about 40 people visiting the site. Many of these people left enthusiastic and nice comments, some of which will appear in a future blog. People attended from far and wide including Norfolk, Ipswich, Tulbury Juxta Clare and Belchamp St Paul. The success of SVCA is spreading!
