Week 1: Bird Battles & Worm Wars!

Week 1

Well we have finally gotten a break from digging, which actually gives us a chance to work on (what we promised a couple weeks ago…sorry) our blog! During Week 1, with our first years, we made a good start! We opened three pits; V, W, and X, near the Commandant’s House based on information from historical maps as well as test pits from previous years. Despite a constant battle with seagulls, and worms, we made great progress, and were able to find many artefacts such as animal bones, nails, glass, ceramic, and even an earring!

Until next time!
