Windy day on the beach

Windy day on the beach

Day 2 of the dig on the beach, a windy day so its goggles all round!  The working holiday group were happy but less full of beans as the aches in muscles they never knew existed hit with every step. Or was it just me! 🙂 We were joined by Kait from Canada who had a couple of days left in Dorset and took the chance to have a dig with us, her experience was on Paleolithic sites back home, so our site was pretty modern 🙂

Cleaned wall and rubble.

We carried on cleaning the section of wall to reveal the extent of the site and started to remove the rubble from the collapsed walls. We have found the base of the old seat and just at the end of the day came across a lot of corroded iron. All will be revealed tomorrow as we discover what it is!

Also at the end of the day this lovely clay smoking pipe bowl appeared next to the wall of the building, it dates to about 1800.
