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.

Monday's finds also included a jet bead...
Catherine also reports on some more of Monday’s finds:
On Monday I planned the section of wall that I had been excavating for the past week. I had to use a grid to draw each stone in the wall and lost my balance a few times almost falling into the supposed grave that was close by, much to Helen's delight! Later on in the day I moved on to digging with Maeve, Hayley and Rhianna, and Maeve found a Jet bead! Which was very exciting!
Rhianna, Maeve and Catherine on the look out for more finds
