Week Two – Thursday

Cake production reached epic proportions today with pride of place going to Sue’s lovely commemorative example below. Such was the quantity of cake on offer that we decided to save it for tomorrow.


Meanwhile the conundrum that is trench 1 is gradually being unpicked producing an ultra relaxed approach to digging as demonstrated by Richard.


Carly from Current Archaeology magazine visited the site and was given the grand tour by Will.

It will now be eyeballs out to complete the outstanding work in all three trenches as we have just three days in which to complete this excavation. Where have I heard that one before?

Temple Field dig open for tours

This Saturday 1 September only

You can visit the dig and see our progress. Among other things we have discovered the remains of what we believe to be a large high status house with a tessellated floor.  There will be tours at 11.00, 14.00 and 15.00 on Saturday 1 September. All are welcome to see the dig in action and find out what we are doing.

We look forward to seeing you! Please note the site is not open at other times.
