Weather: Still can't make up it's mind. Hot, cold, rainy.

Word of the day: Material Culture

Find of the Day: A pair of copper alloy pins. (Below)

A few weeks ago we found a piece of pottery with a pair of feet on it and some horses legs. This piece pictured above is from the same piece of pottery. Unfortunately they don't quite fit together. Theer is a tiny piece missing from the puzzle.

This glazed number is what is known as Manorware and there are huge amounts of it because it was produced here in the 18th/19th century.

A new field school were on site today. This field school is called Material Culture.

In trench 16, students were digging out a new feature. Further down a large hole was discovered. A post may have been in this hole at some point.

Site planning is still going on. Above Charlotte is recording stone by stone in a feature in trench 18.
