Day 1 – Excavation

Posted on Updated on

It is the end of day 1 at Brockhampton and what a busy day it has been.  Thank you to everyone who visited and helped out with the excavation today, not only was the company great but so was the weather.

After setting up the site and laying out some of the trenches in the morning. It was then a case of removing the turf and beginning the excavation of trenches 1 and 4.  It is of course early days but the artifacts have started to fill the finds trays as the trenches received their first good troweling.
