Day 6 – Rain!

Today it rained… a lot. Work went on and everyone on the site was good humoured and worked like heros. We can finally say goodbye to the stony layer and look forward to better weather and stratified medieval deposits tomorrow. We got a visit from the Underwater Unit of the Department of the Environment (they, at least, enjoyed the wet conditions). Karl Brady from the unit identified writing on one of our medieval tiles; ‘CRO…’ (go Karl!). We had a look at the bridge and the weirs and identified key places along the Boyne River that might reveal ancient features. We hope they will return in a couple of weeks to undertake some more survey work. Three new volunteers joined the team today, a tough start for them.

 

Despite the rain, an intrepid team carries out more survey.
