Day 12 – Excavation

Posted on Updated on

The twelfth day has been and gone and what a busy day it was with plenty of digging and recording on the go.  The excavation of Trench 9 continues with aim of exposing the possible medieval horizon discovered yesterday by Roger.

Elsewhere, following the removal of the topsoil in Trench 14 yesterday, today has been taken up with its recording. Before we can excavate further we need to ensure the trench is drawn at its current phase, thank you Esther.

We also had a big push today to clean all of the artefacts to date thanks to Lindsay, Catherine, Ros and Kevin. Good work team 🙂

It’s surprising how much has been retrieved
