Day eight, sand blasted and frayed lips! My last day on site as I pass the baton on to Martin to finish all the drawing and pondering about the site 🙂
The day started with a welcome to new volunteers Alison and Vaughn and the return of Fay. Rob hoped his plants in his garden would survive without watering, as he decided to stay another day. We sectioned off an area we were going to leave unexcavated and concentrated on digging the layers down to the, hopefully, flagged floor along the back of the wall and down the sides.
As the day went on there was an amazing transformation as new levels of floors and small rooms appeared, not many finds, apart from a few small pieces of pottery on the very top of the floor.
I managed to do a bit of digging and found Excalibur! well it’s probably a large hinge, I have done a long stint on site and I may have got carried away!
As the remains of the plaster and reed partition is lifted we can hope for a few sealed finds underneath, there is always hope!
So much to work out and so little time!
The recording and scale drawing gathers pace 🙂
