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.

Day 17: Squirrels Vs Archaeologists.

Today, on the 3rd of June 2015, Dan lost croissant to a squirrel.

It would’ve been a dark day for archaeology if it weren’t for the amazing finds found on site by our archaeologists.

A large medieval bone needle found by our well versed archaeologist Ross.
A huge medieval animal mandible possibly from an adolescent cow or pig found by our archaeologist Jenny.

And some excellent clearing carried out by two incredibly dedicated archaeologists Kim and Kate.

All and all, beside the thievery of a croissant by an archaeology hating squirrel, today we made so much progress in excavating and understanding this site.
