Day twelve
Good progress and some interesting finds today before the rain arrived. We have come across several examples of the decorative use of crinoidal limestone but today in Area 4 we found a rectangular "flagstone" with square corners and a neat edge. Also in Area 2, pieces of a Black Burnished ware "dog bowl".
It was a day for welcoming visitors too. Technology expert and SWAAG webmaster Stephen Eastmead arrived with his drone to take some vertical shots of the site. Then Landowner David Clarke rocked up on his quadbike for a look round and was delighted with progress and amazed at the extent of what has been uncovered. Finally our friend and pottery mentor Eniko Hudak arrived bearing gifts of biscuits. She took the time to look through our pottery finds to date including the dog bowl still in situ.
Sadly shortly after she left, the heavens opened and after a jolly time huddled in the finds tent, work was abandoned for the day.
