On this day...31st July
Here we see Matt Cross wielding the ‘staff of power’ during a site tour in 2009.
Forward two years to 2011 and a very industrious sight. A group of volunteers are busy meticulously sorting residue. Were you part of this group?
Another photo from 2011 that we couldn’t resist adding is this one of Westie on Trench 14. He is clearly working rather deep down but we wonder what he is thinking as he peruses the archaeology?
We conclude today with a photograph taken in 2013. It was difficult to capture this imprint in a section of daub excavated from the ‘oven’ collapse which was becoming increasingly fragile as it dried out. Can you make out most of a small handprint? This would have been on the inside of the oven suggesting that perhaps children had the job of applying the daub inside due to space.
