Dig Day Five

Excavation conditions remain extremely challenging with searing temperatures and baked earth to contend with. The highlight of the day has been a GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) survey of the part of the ancillary building lying outside the excavation area. This was kindly conducted by Tim Dennis a colleague of Geoff’s. Once the data has been analysed it should provide crucial information on the depth of the building walls, in particular. This in turn will help inform our excavation strategy in the ancillary building. Given the extremely taxing digging conditions, allied to the limited time available, it is clearly imperative that we make the most of the time available to us.
