Week 3 – Tuesday

It was bound to happen at some point during our three weeks here in Somerset: we got rained off site.

The team awoke to rain and found both trenches on site too dangerous to work on, so everyone piled back in to the minibus and headed in to Yeovil. James and Andy headed off to buy the grass seed we need for the end of the dig while the rest of the team piled in to the nearest café for a bit of R&R.

Once back on site in the afternoon we got stuck in sponging up all the water that had accumulated in the features and trowelled back trench B for our end-of-dig photos – our efforts were somewhat ruined by another bout of rain but everyone is still smiling!

Let’s hope that the weather tomorrow – our last day of digging – will be in our favour!
