In the western end of trench A Jess, Pete and James cleaned up to prove that it contained no archaeology.
However in the eastern side of Trench A, James and the digger driver carried on machining to uncover an interesting linear stone feature of unknown date and function – it could be a drain or a wall.
In trench B Andy and James continued to open the trench to discover it was full of archaeological features. These seem to fit the geophysics. Finds so far include medieval pottery and a stone hone.
We came home to a delightful tea of fajitas and potato salad from locally grown potatoes.
