Because I had my thermal vest on the day was much brighter, or so it seemed. We found the rectangular cobbled foundation that we excavated in 2008 and were looking for features around it to give it a broader context.
We were joined by two ducks who were enjoying the rich pickings of worms left by the excavator. Colleagues from OnSite Archaeology are working alongside us, in an area of a road corridor which the developers are ready to start work on – the work is slightly delayed by the discovery of a complicated timber and wattle lined well, and archaeologists are going to be working 7 days this week to ensure that the road development can go ahead as planned next week.
