Batteries A-OK: A further day of survey at Bradford Kaims

Neal and I spent a few hours at Bradford Kaims doing a little EDM survey, to complete the recording of the environmental core transects. We had tried before with Dr Richard Tipping, but the EDM batteries rather defeated us by failing at a crucial moment.

Surveying Transect C, across the re-filling wetland.

We now have 3D coordinates of the tops of each of the cores, taken in lines across the wetland areas, to the east and west of the finger of dry land on which the second of our burnt mounds was discovered. The data will help Richard and Dr Danny Paterson reconstruct the story of how the various small lake basins, around our dry land sites, in-filled over the millennia.
