Our last post from the dig!

We have come to the end of our three weeks here in Somerset and will be sad to wave goodbye to it tomorrow morning…But first, we’d like to thank everyone who made this dig possible:

James and Liz Tabor for allowing us to camp in their field, SSARG for their amazing volunteers and lending us their HQ and some equipment, GeoFlo for their surveys of the fields, Nigel Harvey for his hospitality, Mr and Mrs Unwin and their son Robert for allowing us to dig up their land, Colin and Maggie Baker for their tractor and time, Liz Glaisher and Brympton Parish Council for their support and donations, Liz Caldwell, James Hooper for his ‘big yellow trowel’, The Rt Hon David Laws MP for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit the site, Mike Charles (Ski) for his metal-detecting expertise, Mary Loxton, James and Carol Pullen, the good people of Yeovil, Brympton and Sutton Montis, the Western Gazette, The Camelot, Mudford Stores, Caffè Nero, Bartington Instruments, all of our readers – especially Marie Robinson – and the team’s friends and families.

Without all of you Lufton 2013 wouldn’t have been possible – THANK YOU!

And keep checking the blog for updates on the analysis of this year’s finds.
