American Independence Day was celebrated in true archaeological style with the liberation of additional space in trench 20 and 22.
|The northward extension of trench 22 shows the predicted continuation of the flagstones from the previously excavated area.|
|Extension of trench 20.|
|A headless horseman from the extension in trench 20. This is likely to be a fairly recent children's toy.|
Why did you decide to come on the dig?
Because we don't get much opportunity to try anything new and this seemed perfect.
Are you enjoying the day so far?
Yes! It's nice to get away from having a full time job and get mucky for the day.
FIND OF THE DAY!!
|Bone comb found in extension of trench 22. This is probably related to the 19th century occupation of cottages in the long gallery.|
