Work still continues on our excavations at Little Millhams. A trial Pit opened up some 20 metres further north from our original site has revealed an interesting feature at a depth of about 1.5m in the shape of a shallow ditch-shaped feature filled with ancient black sludge and apparently sealed under a distinctive sandy layer containing a scatter of medieval, possibly Saxon pottery sherds. Finds within the ditch are sparse and are mainly animal bones including the jawbone of a pig – the photo shows part of another bone protruding from east facing side of the excavation. As usual on this site, between two watercourses, the excavation soon becomes wet even without rain!
