On this day...4th August
We know that today is not the 4th August but some technical issues have meant that we have not been able to post for a while. Normal service is now resumed and we are delighted to be able to continue our "On this Day..." blogposts (albeit not on the correct days!)
So, without further ado, let's look at 4th August in days gone by.
What a trip down memory lane this is. Were you here in 1998? What can you remember? Let us know, we would love to hear from you.
Now leap forward in time to this date in 2015. Can you identify the artefact that Terry recovered from Trench 21? They are hardly any different to those we use today are they? But these tweezers, with their typically wide spatulate terminals, date to the Anglo-Saxon period. They are simply produced, from a single piece of folded copper-alloy.
