Day 5 of the SJM Dig – The last day :’(

The final day, some final finds, a grand finale and cake :D


Digging Day 4 (Thursday) at SJM

day four – the day of clay, clay and more clay – with a metal detector and two extensions thrown in too!


Day three ‘ The day of a thousand finds…’

We started the day by digging the pits and trying to get to each context. Trench 3 found lots and  lots of CBM and a two buttons. One plain and the other black and with detail on it. We dont know what they are too yet but we are eager to find out . Trench 2 found pottery , tiles , brick and a lot of CBM aswell. We had to do a building survey in the celler because the foundation has been given a grant to build a recording studio . So Ben and Rani went to the celler and measured all the bricks for one of our archeologists to draw so that there is a record of what was there incase any of the bricks get damaged or eroded. Then we finished the day by doing our trench talks , and discussing out finds and any interesting things that were uncovered.
