Today we prepared the pit, and began uncovering the layers with trowels and taking the excess material to sieve for finds.
We then collected a finds tray and detected the spoil pile for any missed finds using a metal detector. We discovered a hearth and a patch of charcoal, and a total of 68p. Some of us drew specific timber beams by a scale of 1.10.
We were also visited by Martin, an original builder of the houses who was fascinated by our archaeological finds. It was great fun regardless of the weather!
