The day started with a cool breeze and a geophysics survey, Martin and Charlie were already on the hill, my duties were to sort out the porta-cabin and open the gate for Clive the wonderful digger driver, who did a fantastic job when we dug on Golden Cap. With the arrival of Fay and Carol we had most of the coastal team back together 🙂
Having measured how far down the cliff the burnt material was, we knew we had to get Clive to keep going untill we found the burnt layer, at least a meter and a half deep. We started to find worked flint and even some pottery in the softer charcoal flecked layer, we had evidence of human activity, hurrah! There was even a chunk of Kimmeridge shale from about 45 miles further east along the coast. Tomorrow we will post pictures of the finds.
Looks great! Can’t wait to join you at the weekend.
Don’t forget your sun cream and trowel 🙂
