Day 21: Monday 20th July

Weather: Hot and sunny

Word of the day: Penguins and Sharks.

Quote of the day: Whilst reading the joke from the back of a Penguin chocolate bar:
Charlie: I'm disappointed with this joke.
Victoria: I'm disappointed with life.

Find of the day: This large piece of worked bone from the handle of a knife. (Below)

After the rain of the weekend, Tom was trowelling back in trench 17 to see the features once again.

Katie a BSc Archaeology student from Sheffield and Philippa a Ba History and Archaeology student from Newcastle were digging out the second vegetation feature in trench 18.
Skulls from Bawtry.

You may have read about the field school taking place at Bawtry Cemetary last week. If you are an avid follower of Charlie's Beard you will know that Charlie kept disappearing to medieval burial ground. Above is one of the skulls found. Charlotte is carefully cleaning the female medieval skull so it can then be sent for professional analysis.

Buttery Jonathan is still busy site planning. Above is the start of his site plan of trench 16.
