Another great discovery of the day is a stone wall which is gradually being uncovered in the second trench which was opened this morning. This could potentially be related to the flanker as part of a 17th century bawn. Alternatively it could be forming part of much later garden features at the site. Hopefully time will tell.
This afternoon we also had a visit from Joe Mahon who spoke to staff and volunteers and filmed a segment of the excavation for use in his Lesser Spotted Culture series which is due to be aired later in the year.
A good day was had by all and great thanks are extended to our volunteers; Ciaron McCloskey, Gregory Maguire, Marketa Hoppova, Pearl Austin and Pat McGuigan, for all their exceptional hard work and assistance.
