Today was our first day at the dig site, and we were all a bit nervous as to what to expect, but once we got stuck in everyone found their own jobs to do and what had appeared a daunting task became a fun activity. We were digging down to the layer of Terram left by the previous year's excavation, and found a lot of interesting items. I personally found a lot of pieces of clay tobacco pipes, slipware, Samian ware, Burnished ware, glass, bone, and a musket ball.
I was very excited to find a piece of flint that Dan the Supervisor said is very likely to be prehistoric if it shows signs of having been worked. I can hardly wait to hear about the outcome of that.
It was very exciting to go into the dig today and to start finding artefacts straight away and I am very excited to see what we will uncover tomorrow.
