Day one: 28th May 2016, news from the trenches

Day one was a great success, everyone enjoyed themselves and we certainly filled our finds trays with interesting things.

Here are a few notes on progress so far:

Area A:  Saw investigations into a row of flints and stone proceed well, (see below). Star find was part of a pot with burnt material inside,see above.



Area B: Here we were working on a ditch first found by Ashley 20 years ago. The surface has been cleaned and we have begun to work on finding the profile. A great deal of pottery has been found, including some pieces from the same pot. See below…DSCN1905

Area C: After cleaning back a possible post hole is being investigated. Adjacent to this is a flint area overlaid with clay containing pottery (including samian), glass, nails and part of a pair of tweezers, see below. DSCN1906

Area D: A previously dug pit was reopened and found to contain charcoal deposits. DSCN1897

  1. Sounds good – pity I can’t make this weekend – too many jobs lined up but sure I’ll be updated!
