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