Thanks to all of Chris’ hard work, lots of progress has been made on trench A. By cutting a cross-section through the trench, we hope to find out when the ridge first existed in the orchard, and why it might have been there. This cross-section will also provide information on the movement of the soil. Through looking at finds in different layers, we will be able to date these changes and further understand the different uses of the orchard in the past.
Meanwhile, in trench B an unusual stone arrangement has been uncovered. If you have any ideas as to what this might be, please leave a comment or contact us on our facebook or twitter pages…
To continue with our pottery theme, we have now uncovered the base of the kiln from the Cider House Pottery.
We’ve sadly had to say goodbye to one of our dig volunteers today, as Cathy (who uncovered our selection of horseshoes!) is travelling the 3357 miles back to Canada! We’ve had a great time with her at I Dig Godolphin, and hopefully she will be back to dig here again in the not too distant future.
