Day 12 – A culvert (?) exposed

There was a large team working in Cutting H today and great ‘craic’ was had by all. We were delighted to welcome Maria and Edgar to the site but we had to say goodbye to Casey from New Jersey. It was Susan’s birthday ‘Happy Birthday, Susan ! The external wall of the ‘tower’ is still coming down and Edgar (all the way from the Bahamas) was working on the interior. The Cutting J team exposed a large area of stone collapse that may originally have been a drain or culvert. There are a lot of small animal bones coming from it. Sean found a nice piece of lead.

Arlene (MA student in archaeology at UCD) and Edgar (of the illustrious Trinity College Dublin Geography class of '89 and now of Eleuthera, Bahamas) excavate in the interior of the tower in Cutting H. After a long day of chipping through sterile red clay, the team were rewarded with a single sherd of medieval pottery.

Best friends forever: The crew from Cutting H. Peadar, Maria, Stephanie, Siobhán, Áine and Sean.

KC's farewell cake. Goodbye and thanks for all your help.

Susan's birthday cake looks suspiciously like KC's farewell cake.
