They think its all over…… – day 11

So we reach the last full digging day, Martin is in and out the trenches digging here and there, gathering the information he needs to record, so he can tell the story of what we have found.

Rob came back for a day all the way from Devon; he is our longest serving archaeological volunteer, 30 years next year! He proved once again to be a lucky charm, as he found some wonderful finds ūüôā

He worked in the trench with the tile pilae¬†again and found the rest of Tony’s pot! Its black burnished ware made around Poole Harbor in Dorset, and the rim piece Tony found fits perfectly.

Rob didn’t stop there! He was asked to excavate a bit more from the next door trench, and after a short while he came and said he had found a little bit of something I may like. So up the wooden steps I went and suddenly saw this colourful patch in the soil. Wow! This trench has produced two Wows, it’s a painted plaster feast!

Spot the plaster, look to the left side

So we have another section of the overall pattern that decorated the walls.

Wow!

Wow!

A very good day, a¬†shame it’s nearly the end of the dig..
