This week in Trench 1 we’ve mainly being cleaning up the trench and trying to determine the edges of various features, including two linear features one of which we believe is a ditch. The other linear feature appears to be a slot, probably from a timber building.
We’ve also found a post hole adjacent to the hearth feature. Due to this phase of cleaning, we believe we now know the extent of both linear features and the post hole. In the last two days we have been planning the entire trench including the older half of Trench 1 where two Anglo-Saxon buildings are. We will then photograph the entire trench and excavate several contexts within the trench starting from next week.
