Report 5 for 17 August 2012

Another day of steady progress uncovering the foundations. We have found a large area of mortar which was clearly the foundation for a tile floor. A couple of tiles are still in place – plain red ones not the tin glazed ones.

Another area seems to be developing into the fill of a cellar.

We have found another piece of the spotty tin glazed tile.

Work continues.

* And so..... * ..... another piece of the..... * ..... spotty glazed tin..... * ..... stone tile is revealed,,,,,
* ..... in all its glory. * * *
