Trench 2 continues to produce artefacts of mixed date. And it was this trench that gave us our find of the day – a lovely Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged arrowhead. With its elongated, gently curving barbs this example is one of the less common sub-types and like so much of the flintwork from the site is in pristine condition.
Towards the eastern end of Trench 3 we have at least two shallow Neolithic pits to add to the tree throws I mentioned yesterday – there may be more to come.
On the western side of Trench 3 some of us spent a good part of the day trowelling back in a quest to reveal stakeholes. You can see some of these marked by small white tags in the picture below. These may have formed part of ephemeral middle Neolithic structures. So appropriate then that we were joined in our search by Professor Mike Parker Pearson – who has a bit of a reputation to keep up when it comes to finding Neolithic structures.
