Day 6: Thursday 19th May 2011
A lovely day for digging and for practising your Cat's Cradle.......
Work progressed well in both trench extensions and it was particularly rewarding in Trench 1 - before:
You may be able to make see that we have revealed six very large flat stones all in a line to the left of the ranging pole which appear to be in situ. The width of these stones - up to 0.5m across - could be the original width of the wall - with smaller flat stones placed on top.
We also took some soil samples from Trench 2 for analysis
and put a second extension on Trench 1 to determine the full width of the SW end and to hopefully reveal some of the flooring - more de-turfing!
Question of the day......How many IAG members does it take to dig a trench?
