The 2018 season of SVCA excavations saw us return to Hill Farm, Gestingthorpe where we re-visited Trench A of the Old Barn Field site. On this occasion a new slot was opened up at right angles to the original slot opened in the autumn of 2017. More evidence of the extent of the ditch feature was revealed and more pottery sherds discovered in the dark ash fill area. One group of sherds proved to be part of the same large vessel. New members took part in this day’s excavation and were well rewarded with finds, boosting their confidence in their newly acquired skills!
