May 20 2019. Day 1

A hard morning of deturfing brought us straight down onto the archaeology just below the surface. Two trenches were opened over possible round house platforms in the presumed early and later phases of the site. Almost immediately floor surfaces of flat stones were visible. Our mission for this second dig at the site is to gather more dating evidence to confirm the use of the site from pre to post Roman. We look forward to splendid weather and lots of interesting archaeology. We will again be welcoming volunteers to the site; children from Orton primary school will visit again, as will young archaeologist groups. Here’s to a great dig. We will be posting pictures from the site on our instagram pages.
