With only three more days digging to go before this excavation comes to an end there is still much work to do. The excavations in Trench 4 have reached the natural periglacial deposits and the archaeologists are now cleaning back the surface to look for cut features such as pits and post holes.
In Trench 6 there is a large posthole which is packed with chalk and sarsen stones that may have contained a good-sized timber post and they are still digging through the remaining archaeological deposits over the rest of the trench.
Lots of visitors to the site again, making the most of the chance to see the excavation whilst taking a walk in this wonderful landscape. If you haven’t been down to have a look yet, you need to do so before Thursday as they will start filling in the trenches again on Friday.
