Week 4 Excavation Round-up
Week Four has seen us continue drawing, photographing and describing the different features (cuts, potential post-holes, pits and ditches) emerging in Trenches 1, 3 and 4.
It is becoming clear that much of the activity that has occurred on site has been preserved in the clay, which makes identifying features reasonably easily. Unfortunately, we have no dating evidence yet that might help us make sense of this activity. However, we are very pleased with our discoveries to date, as it is the first time such evidence has been found on site. It is also giving our volunteers plenty of opportunity to learn a variety of new archaeological skills.
We also opened a new 5x1m trench. Our fifth on site. This has been sited to explore a series of low and high resistance results uncovered during the geophysical survey undertaken in the summer. The results might be geological but we are hoping they might be further evidence for human activity on site.
Finally, a huge thanks to Laura for baking up a storm and keeping the troops well fed (especially Tony)!
