Day five on the windy Dorset coast, with sand in our eyes, hair and ears the National Trust working holiday group reach their last day. The group have worked very hard to get as much excavated as possible, I cannot thank them enough.
Again the girls and the boys worked at opposite ends of the site, the boys in the late 18th century and the girls in the 1940s!
The rubbish pit produced mugs, plates, bottles, tin cans and a toothbrush! The plate gave us a good date 1943 written on the base and we had two fancy art deco type Brylcream jars, I think we are starting to build a good picture of the guys who dug the hole seventy years ago!
Susie found a hoard of bottles and an enamel water flask.
Alison found the mugs, and Kathleen a drinks bottle.
At three o clock the rain came but so did the chocolate cake 🙂 everyone left with warm glows and full tummies 🙂
