Foot of Avebury Down Dig – Day 5

We’ve finished our chequerboard excavation of Trench 1! Now it needs a clean back to really bring out the features we’ve identified. We’ve had a Middle Bronze Age day today, with a pottery sherd in the top fill of a feature, found by two delighted students, and it looks like a few post holes have been revealed! More on this to follow…

We started our excavation of Trench 2 in the late morning, using the same method as Trench 1. Tomorrow is the team’s day off so they will be unwinding tonight, ready for the start of the second week on site on Sunday.
