Post-excavation: finds processing begins
So many quern fragments; it is tempting to speculate that there is some significance related to the primary function of this site. The steelyard weight unearthed in the 2017 dig suggested trading, while the collared hopper quern suggested a link to the Roman military, perhaps the fort at Catterick. This year we have found 16 further quern pieces. What does it mean?

The digger arrives
Busy backfilling today. Lots of stone put back in, followed by the digger - a sterling job to put back all the soil that we spent two weeks carefully removing. Re-turfing has begun but extra time is required. Back tomorrow for a final push.
