Despite disappointing weather we decided to return to Trench G26 today in order to further investigate the north and south ends and the possible curvature of the black area already identified.
The southern area was further taken back in a southerly direction. Pottery was found in association with black charcoal and ash. Some pottery was associated with the flint area, flints being embedded around the pottery. Soil samples were taken and the pottery finds included some large black rims.
In the northern area finds included a small fragment of glass, a piece of wood – associated with charcoal deposits – and degraded terracotta pottery. The north western corner contained some flint microliths and discards.
