While we ended our day a little bit short yesterday due to the pouring rain, we thoroughly enjoyed the enthusiasm of a group of young local children on the site!
Today was much brighter, drier and very warm. So we dug deep into some of the building layers in an effort to expose the extent of the medieval buildings, only to find various levels of complexities starting with the post-medieval house. Within this increasingly complex stratigraphy, excavators are recovering some interesting individual objects, including buckles, buttons, stone and ceramic 'spindle whorls' (including one off the spoil heap) and loads of medieval pottery. It's become quite addicting to expose the next layer of stone, as we try to uncover the remains of this unrecorded settlement!
