The sun shines upon us?

Minus four days and counting!

Today Hugh & Pete visited the priory to carry out some preliminary survey; setting up a local grid (on which to plot all those pretty artefacts we shall uncover) and laying out Trench 1!

We encountered a grand total of just two people visiting the site today enjoying the views.

The weather was glorious and hopefully a sign of things to come. So everything is prepared for Saturday morning and the arrival of a hoard of archaeologists eager to dig and record. Hope to see you all there!
