Dig Day Four

Hats off to everyone on site today. In temperatures pushing beyond 25 degrees celsius the teams have made steady progress in all three trenches. To date the ditch trench is producing the most pottery in terms of quantity and variety with a small selection of pre-Roman sherds and some decorated samian.

Trench 1 over the ancillary building is now showing a good length of wall in all its glory with intriguingly a couple of very large pilae tiles at the western limit of the trench. The purpose of these has yet to be established.

The potential post holes in Trench 2 showed up well following a quick application of water from the killaspray. The plough scarring also shows up well after spraying.
