SVCA excavations day 3 28th May 2017

Day 3 of our Romano British dig
A new area of the site was opened up today, Trench G26. This was where Ashley, several years ago, had discovered an area of flint cobbles and a nearby ditch. During the day these flints were revealed and several sherds of pottery were found. .
In one area of this trench the body of a large vessel was uncovered which contained bone and burnt material.
Slot trenches were dug in the newly extended areas of Trench C during the morning and sections drawn in the afternoon. In Trench F an interesting group of large flints was uncovered adjacent to where the boar skull was discovered recently. Further investigation of this area will be undertaken on Day 4, as will investigation of another potential post hole at the eastern end of Trench C. Have we discovered a possible cobbled pathway to a wayside shrine……? The site continues to produce more interesting conundrums
