There was no rest for the wicked today – James, Andy and most of the team were on site bright and early this morning to set up for the Open Day in honour of the Festival of British Archaeology.
Cubby and Dave stayed at the camp site to clean up and prepare us a delicious dinner before James’ well received talk at the Abbey Manor Community Centre. The team cracked on with their digging while James and Andy showed swathes of keen locals (nearly 200 we think) around the site. Members of SSARG were there to welcome visitors and give them a brief introduction to the surrounding archaeology.
The whole team really enjoyed themselves and were very happy to share their experiences with the public. We would also like to extend a very big ‘Thank you’ to James for surprising us all with an incredible archaeology-themed cake made by his friend Claire Blanchard
