It was the last day of digging and, after yesterday, when we discovered a large pit filled with brick rubble, it was all hands to the pit to determine what it was and why it was.
So typical of the last days of an excavation, the pit was full of finds, and everyone wanted to have a go. Great excitement , as everyone finished tea-break early, and put their heads back into the pit.
So all very busy, but do our volunteers look happy?
Behind this happy group are a couple of volunteers excavating a layer of topsoil that was buried by or contemporary with our stone building. In just one hour they filled a finds tray with medieval pottery.
Tomorrow will be our last day, largely an Open Day, from 10am to 2pm or until the last group want to hear about our findings, so probably somewhat later.
Therefore, we had a little nibble of cake and cup of tea at the end of work today. I think everyone can deserve the title of ‘Ace of Spades’. Thanks all.
