Six of us met at the Limes yesterday for our first day of digging, Tim and Anne, David Rae, Tony, Sue Holmes and myself. We began by laying out the trench outline with string and pegs according to Terry’s survey then began removing turf from both ends. I had hoped to dig to a depth of 6″ but there were too few of us, however we dug both ends and Sue Holmes and Anne uncovered brick and rubble which looks interesting, some pot was found and Tony went out for a walk near Romans chase and came back with a suspiciously Roman looking brick!
We had a very nice time in the warm sunshine and packed up around 2pm. I’m attaching a couple of photos to show you what we did. Hopefully a few more will turn up next Saturday.
