Harris fencing has arrived and will be set up around the site perimeter at the end of the day; Health and Safety are important considerations in any excavation undertaken by the CAF. Five volunteers have arrived on site today to muck in and try their hand at archaeology. We are continuing to clean back trench 1, removing the loamy topsoil and roots. The curve of the flanker wall is slowly emerging and taking shape.
A second trench measuring 4m by 2m has been opened up over potential structural features which were identified during the aforementioned geophysical survey.
