New Development on the Kiln Site

Hello Everyone,

The field schoolers did a great job for six weeks of excavations on the kiln site but there is still work to be done. Former Vindolanda writer-in-residence Sue has taken over some of the work on the kiln site.  In the last two days she has found a huge amount of ash just below where we stopped at the end of the field school.  As we were exposing the ash this afternoon we started to find a lot of organic material and in it we found two pieces of a wooden artifact.  It’s hard to say what these pieces of wood are parts of, but it may be a stool.  Does anyone else have another idea?  Perhaps a pottery wheel to go with the kiln?

I’d love to hear you suggestions?

 

All the best from rainy Northumberland,

Alex

  1. Awesome! But I have no idea what it could be.

  2. Very interesting! Your suggests seem the most plausible. That it’s a frisbee seems less likely…
