The first week of excavation

The first week of excavation

We spent the first week learning excavation technique, getting our eye into seeing soil changes, differentiating between pottery and stones and finding a Roman glass bead, pottery sherds and other small finds. The trench is looking very promising! We probably have a large Roman ditch running across the ditch horizontally and a later stone feature, right now of unknown date. Lauren Flynn and Rachael Crawford trowel back next to a cobbled surface.
