From the trenches

During the excavation we have a core of volunteers who gave a great deal of time and effort to the dig. For many it was their first time digging, and for some it was a bit of a shock! Unlike many sites, we were obliged to remove the turf and topsoil by hand. The excavation was started off by Lady Chichester who supported the project from the first. We have a visual record of the work and want to share this with you. Some of our images are more formal shots of the archaeology and others are more informal images of life in an around the dig.

Here are some images from Trench 1 when the topsoil has been removed and the area has been cleaned.

Here are some images from the excavation of features.

And here are some post-excavation images
