Today started off miserable and this seemed to put a lot of people off as we only had five on site today. The rain did clear, however and we managed to get quite a lot of field walking done.
We cleared a lot of the grids in the bottom of the field, so then we headed up to the top near the gate where there was bags full of pottery! This is probably because the farmer has had manure sitting in this area or it is because it is the access path so has had a lot of traffic running through the area. Unfortunately we are still only finding that medieval pottery is the earliest artefacts on site.
Today's team who braved the rain!
We packed up early as there was so few of us, but the farmer is happy to allow us to continue working next week in order to recoup the days we've lost to rain. We still have the geophysical survey to finish off and some more field walking and so we will be taking it on a day-by-day basis, but check our Facebook page and Twitter feed for ongoing news about the work!
