On the 5th, excavations took place in Squares ‘C’, ‘D’ and ‘E’.

A good quantity of the dark earth from Square E (context one) was gradually removed and sieved, but the next context is still to be revealed. Two pot boilers/burnt stones were found in Square E (21g in total). More compacted sand was extracted from context two from both Squares C and D. 3 Flint flakes were found in Square C (20g in total), along with 6 Pottery sherds (total 7g).

A drawing was made of Square C, context two. The excavators and the Pottery sherds were photographed.

On the 19th, excavations took place in Squares ‘C’ and ‘E’.

The dark earth from Square E (context one) was removed and sieved, revealing context two; a light orangey clay material. Two worked flints were found in Square E (3g in total).

A great deal of sand was extracted from context two from Square C, but more is still to be removed. 3 Flint flakes (41g in total), 5 Pottery sherds (17g), 2 burnt stones (21g), 1 flat stone (3g) and 1 broken (possible) Hammer stone (233g), were found in Square C.

Square E, context two, was drawn and it was then photographed, along with the excavators, a selection of bluebells, plus the Pottery sherds and Burnt stones from Square C, context 2 (see photo’s below).
