What a great day!

Well it’s begun. After a quick circuit of the abbey,  in the words of Chairman Mao  ‘we put down our luggage and started the machinery’. The heavy work of de-sodding was instantly rewarded with Stephanie’s discovery  of a medieval floor tile on top of what seems to be a paved floor. Mark won the pogo jumping competition.  Already we are onto medieval layers. A very satisfying day all round.

Way to go Matt, Geraldine and the crew. Great to see the excavations up and running after much anticipation. Looking forward to my visit to see the dig and look at all those stones. Enjoy.
