Day 7

Day 7 of our excavations began with some clean up work in Trench 1.  There were no new finds there to report today.  The remainder of the day was spent at Trench 2.  With the plough soil removed yesterday, we could begin removing the first layer of subsoil.  We found the outline of the ditch on one side, but have not found it on the other.  There were numerous finds of small burnt bone fragments and a few pieces of what looks like Iron Age pottery.  Several features have been outlined in the top layers of soil and fill.  It’s not yet clear what these are, so there are several mysteries for our work to answer at this point.  It keeps the repetitive work of soil removal more interesting.  In late afternoon the cows came to visit us.  They seemed inquisitive at first and then decided that a drink down by the river was more important.
