Day 17 – 2012 Excavations: The Secrets of the Drain
July 24, 2012, 7:32 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

The drain in Cutting S South has been emptied and fully exposed. It produced some fine artifacts; a bone and bronze comb, a complete relief tile and a tuning peg, along with a lot of medieval pottery and brilliant environmental samples. The remaining cuttings (Cutting S North and Cutting P) are nearing completion and survey is in full swing. The office team are at full tilt keeping up with the large quantity of finds uncovered during the last few days.
