On this day... 13th July
Judging by this photograph the Boneyard excavations in 2004 must have had a rather wet start to the season!
A tool everyone should have, a sawn off….plastic milk bottle! Perhaps we should add it to the standard equipment you need to bring to SHARP?
Leap forward ten years to 2014 to see the pot hook recovered from trench 19 by John Jolleys.
As the name suggests this implement was used to hang cooking vessels over a fire. It has a U-shaped curved hook at one end and a flattened, wider suspension hook at the other. Made from iron, it has suffered a little corrosion over the years but below you can see it with its x-rays which make its original outline easier to define.
