Back on site it was all action - digging and cleaning surfaces, planning and section drawing, rechecking drawings and the inevitable pile of records for Gordon and I to sort out. We also had many visitors today despite the weather.
Several local people came by today, and it is great to see such enthusiasm. We also had a visit from Professor Martin Carver, one of the most experienced and knowledgeable early medieval archaeologists in Britain. It was great to talk to him about the site and see his enthusiasm - he also brought us a warming libation as a present - which means he can come back anytime he likes!
And of couse the day wouldn't be complete without a visit from our Number 1 Visitor, Fred. Pretty soon Fred will know more than we do about the site (if he doesn't already). We keep trying to convince him to dig for us - but he says he doesn't want to get his boiler suit dirty.
|Fred seems suspicious of Gordon's photography.|
