Excellent 2 days dig on Bourne. DAY 1 opened 3 trenches exposing shallow channel in compacted (haematite) surface. Some small metal finds but out of context (in spoil). DAY 2 opened 2 further trenches revealing channel continued and widened into shallow bowl-like depression and two possible stake holes or conical bottom of larger posts. We thought it may be a water contained for livestock but could be old animal burrow and nest. However we did find a small probable sherd of pot lying on the hard surface. Also area of possible burning where haematite very dark almost black and fused.

Photos on ... xcavation/

Maybe another dig on SUNDAY 28th. Watch out for announcement.
