On this day...25th July



We begin today with this great working shot from Trench 13 in 2010. Everyone is standing by a post-hole that they are excavating! So what kind of building once stood here we wonder.



This pretty little bead was recovered during environmental sampling of soil from Trench 14 in 2011. It is cylindrical in shape and brownish in colour, with a whitish criss-crossing design. It is typically Anglo-Saxon in style.


We are finishing today with just one of the many photographs we have of daub fragments. What makes this one particularly interesting is the clear impressions left by the wattle. It was just one of hundreds from the ‘oven’ collapse excavated from Trench 17 in 2013.
