OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Pit 44 has yielded some evidence of medieval channels across Little Millhams leading from the course of the Millstream towards the Avon. The photo shows Mike standing on a consolidated area of calcareous gravel which is cut by a channel containing water-borne gravel very similar to the deposits we found above and around the timber structures which we have identified as a mill. A number of small finds within the gravel such as small pieces of medieval pottery and an iron nail are similar, though not as prolific as the former gravel layer. The channel seems to be heading in a generally north-westerly direction towards the Millstream and may indicate further structures closer to the Millstream.
(Edit: tcablogmaster found that he had miscounted and Pit 43 as first published was actually Pit 44!)
