Saying goodbye to the pivot stone in Trench one

The excitement of the week has been the lifting of the pivot stone (the reused quern stone), as we have removed the last of our occupation layer. The soil around it looks like there are interesting deposits still to excavate.

In other trench news, we are removing a floor surface that has been untouched for quite a long time. During this, we came across two new features: an ash deposit and a pit feature full of many giant stones, which requires a great amount of patience for our students to dig.

Also we’re investigating a feature cutting our boulder pit. So far it appears to be rather small but seems to have interesting relationships with our timber slot building.
