Our first proper day on site. We achieved a lot, removing the turf and topsoil. This has exposed a rubble spread and some other deposits that seem to be later than the rubble. We’re not entirely sure what’s going on yet… time will tell. We have had our first finds – a few sherds of pottery and a couple of fragments of animal bone (including a few cattle teeth). There’s plenty of Roman brick and tile and even a few tessera.
Everyone’s worked really hard and a great deal was achieved. Thanks go to Colin who ran our equipment to site in a trailer pulled by his tractor. Lots of thanks also to Andy who spent a lot of the day driving around Yeovil for various bits and piece and did sterling work putting the big army tent up.
We returned home to some delicious chicken wraps lovingly prepared by Dan and James I
