James excavates a finds-rich area...

Today started off with me and Dani finding a grid reference for what we originally thought was a grave site but after excavating it, it turned out not to be, but there was an interesting piece of pottery! 

I was then put onto another part of the site to help with the excavation of a large area. There were five of us working on different sections with me on the far right as you looked at the site. This area turned out to be a little treasure-trove of finds with their being about four finds trays worth of artefacts that came out of it, with the centrepiece of these being a comb that was found and a piece of tile, on which you can see still see all of the decoration that was on it. What was surprising as well was the amount of bone that seemed to be coming from here, it seemed to be every other trowel full we were uncovering a new piece. I was also on public archaeology in the afternoon which gave me a chance to talk to some people from Australia who were very intrigued about the ages of all of the pieces.
