Hillside Phase II day 3

Hillside Phase II day 3

Fantastic day despite the shower mid afternoon. The day started an hour later than planned because of the overnight rain. Fortunately there was no significant water in the trench so starting was fairly straight forward. We were very lucky today to be able to reopen trench 2 and by the end of the day we had it open and cleaned back. In trench 1 cleaning of the June cobble section was continued by volunteer David who, for a first time amateur archaeologist produced stunningly good quality work.Day 3a  3cDay 3b
The 98cm extension was then cleaned by Anne and lo and behold another section of cobbled surface was uncovered. Some more great work was carried out by Pauline and Elizabeth in the finds department whilst Shirley, Andy B and Nigel worked on trench 2. We are looking forward (weather permitting) to get back to work tomorrow to continue our investigation into what is becoming a more and more interesting site.
