Kite Photo - from Day 2

The photo we've all been waiting for - a photo from before the 'escape incident' yesterday. If we can figure out how to make a little movie from the shots the camera took as it floated away.

Here is our site before we cleaned everything, but you can already see the amazing enclosures - recently confirmed (by text!) from experts at the National Museum as 'rather odd and special' - and the many dark coloured 'blobs' that represent our possible ring ditches and pits/postholes.

You can also see a strange 'jigsaw puzzle piece effect' in the photo where the soil has dried very differently - this appears to be a natural phenomenon as the soils are quite different to each other. We don't really know why this happens - perhaps an old palaeochannel? - so comments with answers are welcome!
