Drawing up the Section

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWell, Pit 36 didn’t yield as much as we had expected. As in our last post, we did find some artefacts out of context,which appear to have been dumped, but the rest of the pit was devoid of interest. We bottomed out the excavation on a level of gravel discovered at a depth approaching 2m under layers of featureless silt. However there was no sign of a habitation layer or a concentration of pottery which we had found in an adjacent test pit. It remained to draw up the section and to fill in the pit. However, all of the excavations, even those devoid of finds, help us to understand the medieval topography of the site. (tcablogmaster lost count of the pit numbers and has had to edit this post and the previous to correct the pit number to 36!)
