Today the IAFS students went to the CRDS main office near Greenanstown to wet-sieve our soil samples. Matthew and Geraldine had planned a quiet day drawing section, but that was not to be. When they got to the site the found a group of eager volunteers who wanted to ‘dig’ the site. All the squares hummed with industry and great progress was made. The find of the day was a Fionnuala Parnell’s  shroud pin. It was discovered in the post-medieval pit in the corner of cutting E, where a human skull had been found on Friday last.

 

The 'post pads' of our 'guest house' in cutting B. These substantial masonry plinths would have supported a large building.
