Today we found our first piece of Saintonge pottery, within the interior of our masonry building (the ‘guesthouse’). The sherd came from a rich charcoal and ash layer which the IAFS students will wet sieve on Monday. Watch this space. The cobbled surface was cleaned and planned. The ‘bank’ in cutting in is a much thicker layer than first thought. It will take a few more days to reach the bottom.
