Gosh what a day. I had the most ridiculous trench today; almost vertical sides and nearly a metre deep. AND truncation by tree rooting in one edge. Not even anything datable in it!! However we did get to go to the top of the car park and had a look from the top - everything makes a lot more sense now!

Got to excavate a Roman feature today; was promising to begin with, clear circle with a piece of pottery on the surface. But the edges are elusive as hell and rooted and confusing. Pretty though; apparently the brick red colour could be caused by a tree root being burned and baking the clay around it.
There was a gentleman with a kite camera on site; hope I get to see the photos at some point!
Last trench of the day was exciting at first, too; found a big chunk of cow? bone, but it was so degraded and fragile it just splintered as I tried to excavate it. There was more bone around it, all in the same condition. Made a lovely big bag full of bone at least!

My finds from yesterday’s stupid truncated trench, and the awesome stuff from today’s medieval ditch - lots of very pretty yellow and red CBM, including part of a roof tile (see the hole! ).
We visited the other site OAE is excavting nearby and had a look at their lovely post holes and cobbled surfaces like the ones on our site - there’s look a bit more polished and pretty though.
In other news despite my suntan lotion I’m getting ridiculously brown, and my hand callouses are coming along.

There are some really interesting iron age cobbled surfaces coming up, and it’s really cool to see them in cross-section.
Lovely girl made honeycomb today and it was awesome. She so clever.
I had a bitch of a trench for most of today though; not being used to truncated features I was having a real time working out where the edges were and what I was looking at, and of course it didn’t help that the section didn’t match what I was looking at AND there had been tree-rooting right along the far edge >:(

I had been so worried about the state of my trench after the torrential rain over the weekend, but it wasn’t so bad in the end. Nice cool and cloudy day, with some interesting snails and charcoal in the new trench.
