We're back for our 12th season. Keep up to date with all the discoveries, brought to you by our daily bloggers.
Day 5 was a great day. Firstly because it was my birthday secondly because all the groups came up with some pretty awesome finds and thirdly because Jenny brought cake.
Our group was levelling out a medieval layer ready for further excavation next week, of which in the process we discovered some pretty cool cattle teeth… that are MASSIVE! Seriously, my dentist always tells me I have big teeth; I’m going to have to correct him next time because these things were huge.
It was a pretty biological themed day, with lots of the groups finding fragments both large and small of animal bone, including Chiara who excavated what we believe to be a pig’s jaw with teeth still attached.
Cameron and Ross had a great day getting through a medieval rubbish pit that was found to contain a well-preserved cattle femur bone and some lovely antler. The boys and their bones became the running joke of the day; we just couldn’t get enough of them.
Excited to see what next week brings and praying that the foreboding inclement weather warnings are incorrect *does anti-rain dance*.
