CAER 2017 Begins... Thursday 4th May!

CAER 2017 Begins... Thursday 4th May!
What will be uncovered this year?
We're back for our 11th season during which examination of trench IV will be continued. Our work will examine the interior of the masonry building (the possible chapel) with its drain discharging into the ditch, the western part of the ditch feature where it is overlain by the medieval building and the underlying deposits. This year trench IV will also be extended to the south in order to locate and examine a stone structure identified during the excavation of a service trench in 2013.
Keep up to date with all the discoveries, brought to you by our daily bloggers.

Hi ho - it's off to work we go



James offers his view on days one and two:

Our first job on the site was to clear the remaining earth from the surface of the terram so that it could be removed. This meant whipping out the shovels and getting down to some digging! Suprisingly the sun did make an apearance, but its probably best not to get used to it.

At the end of the day it was great to see the progress we had made as the terram was peeled back revealing the excavation site that we would be working on and we will have to wait and see what things we find. Looking forward to the next few weeks!
