2023 Community Dig – Day 2

datePosted on 09:14, August 26th, 2023 by Website Admin

Day two of the dig (Sunday 27th) was dry and breezy with the work well underway.

As the trenches deepen, the different soil materials are becoming evident.

  • #19 King Alfred Place has two neat trenches, with softer soil and an array of buttons and china coming up.
  • #8 King Alfred Terrace has more rocks and stones, evidence of what could be a wall, and what looks like the pipe hole of a loo.
  • #14 King Alfred Terrace has a more tricky shape and lots of building rubble/foundations to get through.

2023 Community Dig – Day 1

Day one of the dig (Saturday 26th) started off with sunshine and enthusiasm. Everyone got stuck in with the first layers of soil, and soon the finds processors were cleaning off ceramics, pottery shards, different natural materials and glass.

The diggers and finds processors continued diligently in both the sun and the odd rainy shower.
