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.

Action shots!

Get your rocks off (the edge of the trench): blocks of medieval masonry reused as packing material

The new stone feature in the corner of the trench...Roman or medieval?

Even in a sweltering sunny day some of the ditches and drains discovered by CAER in 2013 retain water all too well

Carefully excavating around the early modern drains to see what's underneath
