After yesterdays terrible weather I guess there may have been some bailing out to be done? Sunny we await your report or e mail me & I'll post if you have photos. Can't believe the season is nearly over.

Hi folks, some great photos from mooseandhobbes

"We had a lovely start to today and beautiful sunshine up until about 2pm, when the heavens opened with a vengeance and Andy sent us all for an early bath. Ironically, the sun came out again a bit later, but by then the damage was done as some of the trenches were already a bit of a mud-bath and the rain just made them untenable. We're hoping to make up some of the time tomorrow and I have high hopes for a great day"

"Our home once we'd been at work for a little while. There were only a few finds out of here, mainly animal bone (including a stag's jaw) and a few bits of pot, but we were really looking for the bottom of the ditch."

"I'm afraid that Badger's tree stump has gone, where it once was is now under a load of spoil."

"I was working in about the middle of here in May. This orangey layer is definitely not the natural."

Sarcanon's Wall, I understand that Sarc's wall may have carried an earlier viaduct than the one that you can see in the picture, but I don't know how certain this is.

"there are lots of areas with good anaerobic conditions, yilding such beauties as this..."

Well the end of the digging season but lots of thinking for Andy and team on a complex area. I have reposted Sunnys photos as she sent them throught to me in a reduced size.
