Still windy on the hill, so the goggles were handed out, as we had the site to tidy up and to remove  the loose soil left in the trench  by the mechanical digger. Sections (the sides of the trench) were cut back and straightened, and the layers numbered. We were joined to-day by Alex and Tasha two sixth formers from Warminster and Antony who originally found the site.

More objects have been found including some 18th century pottery, that maybe came  from a jug of drink brought out to workers in the fields,  deeper down we came across some prehistoric pottery and some classic struck flint.
