SVCA at Hadleigh Show 19th May 2018

svcaSVCA were invited to join the Dedham Vale AONB on their stall at the Hadleigh show. We had a fantastic day talking about archaeology to visitors and handing out membership forms. There was also a mini dig for children to enjoy.

Digging on despite the weather – part 2!

IMG_20180506_153524Yesterday’s digging – in complete contrast to last week’s – took place under clear blue skies and in 23ºC.

The southern area of G26 was extended further and small quantities of pottery and flint were found there. The slot in the northern part of G26 was widened and extended in a southerly direction, small pieces of Iron age pottery were uncovered. Our aim is to find out how far the dark area in the southern end extends and if it reaches the northern area.

Star find was the blackened remains of a leaf in an undisturbed layer of clay within the northern part of G26.
