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.

Frances reflects on the start of week two:



On day 5 we all started off trowelling the site again because it had rained over the weekend. After the break groups A and D went over to Albion Street for a talk about public archaeology. We then went for a walk round the walls and got to see the new exhibits set up on sections of the wall, which are going to be open to the public over summer. Our groups then went to another archaeological site in Chester where 5 minutes earlier they had found a genuine Roman coin! We again spent the afternoon trowelling with only a small amount of rain
