On this day...14th July



We remain with 2014 for the first of today's photographs. Recovered from Trench 18 on Chalkpit Field, this flint pick probably dates to Mesolithic times. Tools such as these were probably handheld although they were sometimes hafted. This one has been sharpened to a point at one end with residual cortex surviving away from the point.


A shot now from 2015. We have a working shot of Trench 21. Keith looks on with interest as the importance of the archaeology gradually becomes clear.


Three years on, in 2018, we are beginning to appreciate just how important. This shot (below) of Trench 23 shows the malting complex exposed so far.

Sorry not to be talking about the Paston Letters in the church this evening - this would have been part of the talk www.youtube.com/watch?v=mETthOrAfMk. Hope to see you next year. Peter S.
