At the end of the second week of digging we hear from Helen on the area she has been excavating:
Having reached the end of the second week on site and had a full week of excavation people have started having their own areas of excavation. Some of us have been working on one area for the week, this has been rewarding as I have been able to see the hole grow and the interpretation of it develop as new finds and features were uncovered. This particular hole has produced lots of animal bone, including two large vertebrae, a large fragment of glazed pottery and some other small finds. The main find within this hole though is a stone/brick lined drainage channel. Next week this area of the trench will be excavated further to look for other medieval features that may appear.
