Day Six
With temperatures soaring today, further progress was made in exposing Areas One, Two and Three. The Newcastle students are doing a grand job and exposing more of the flagged yard on the Western edge of the site. In Area Two a wide embankment curves round an extensive flagged floor. This area is being extended North to run into the Eastern annexe and a possible trackway in the NE corner, where there may be a link to the embankment wall. Further pottery finds from Area Two are consistently suggesting an AD 350 -400+ date, the latter part of the Romano-British period. Star find today from Area Three is a small circular lead object with a central hole which may be a spindle whorl. Pics tomorrow.
