Anf a final set, including a rather cheeky little chaffinch outside the museum who joined us for a snack from the cafe!

Yeah, they did that towards the end of the week I think for fear of some of us being drowned if they got any fuller. It was a bit scary to see how deep they actually were, but I don't think the frogs and frogspawn were that impressed!

I hadn't seen anything like the pie-crust before (except on a Greggs pasty pre-tax...) and was disappointed that there wasn't any more. Maybe it's hiding at a deeper level.

The photos are great. Makes my trowel arm twitchy. At the rate the dig is progressing the whole field could be uncovered by the last week in August.
