Day 17 – Cutlery in cutting E

With only three days left we are all working very diligently, through the cold rain that fell much of the day. Our efforts were rewarded when Auriel Robinson found a 15th/16th century spoon and an iron knife while tidying up the section face in cutting E. She will be back tomorrow to find the rest of the table setting. Planning took place in cutting B and in cutting A the cobbled area is all but cleared. In the afternoon, Kevin O’Brien of the Office of Public Works gave a master class on architectural survey. Shannon, a film maker from Ohio, via the Houston Film school in NUI Galway, spent the day with the IAFS participants preparing a short documentary.
