More Finds Washing at Little Millhams

A small group of members spent some hours at Little Millhams on Sunday 7 April finishing off the washing and cleaning of finds from our 2012 excavation, particularly arising from Pit 26. Pit 26 exposed more of the revetment which we believe formed a former bank of the Mill Stream. Interestingly, some of the filling immediately behind the revetment seemed to consist of domestic refuse such as charcoal and animal bones which appeared to have been boiled.
A plan view of Pit 26 is shown in the photograph taken during the excavation in 2012:the white/red scale, which has 100mm bands, lies approximately along the line of the revetment. The domestic refuse was recovered from the area at the bottom right of the photograph.
