One person's rubbish,....
A small piece of pottery/ tile was found in Cutting Five today. The fragment shows part of a person wearing a long sleeved tunic holding something in their right hand. Perhaps it represents a monk or a religious figure? What do you think?
Pottery fragment showing person holding something - intriguing!
Three large pits have been identified so far in Cutting Five which match up to the images of the geophysical survey. Lets hope they represent rubbish pits as you know what they say.....One person's rubbish......is an archaeologist's treasure!
The rest of the site is coming along nicely,....if a bit damp!
