Weather was fine and the portaloos and site hut arrived on time. Quickly got set up and started marking out the proposed excavation trenches. A 6m by 6m trench (trench 1) has been opened up over the location of the previously mentioned flanker. We aim to have this completely uncovered and recorded by the end of the excavation. So far the sods have been removed in preparation for a good clean back tomorrow. Sod removal at this site is a slow process as it is covered in a network of tree and bramble roots.
