Daniel M kicks off week two on the dig:
Finally we had some nice weather. Alas, it made it impossible to dig the ruddy soil! I had cramps in my upper arm after an hour of digging the same section and for practically nothing. All I found were a few corroded nails and sherds of bone and moved hardly any of the rubbley-mess which needs to be completely removed. The dry conditions also caused dust to fill the air all day and was no help for my breathing along side this bloody cold we all seem to have.
We got a preview of the new interiors of the King Charles Phoenix Tower (in Chester), though. That looks like it's gonna be pretty good. This was followed by a short lesson on how to publicise archaeology, which is more complicated than first thought.
Ah well, back to digging tomorrow and tonight's thunder/hail storm will make it much easier AND messier tomorrow. YAY! ^_^
