Excavation at Honeywood
Carshalton & District History & Archaeology Society

Day 10 - Saturday 25th July 2010

We resumed work on the excavation of trench B today. Work has been quite slow as the various deposits have been thin so there have been several stops for recording. We have uncovered an east west aligned cut which may be the lower part of an old plant bedding trench. The finds in it seem on a first look to be somewhat older than the layers above possibly late 17th century rather than first half of the 18th.

We have done more detailed recoding of the rectangular pond.

 We are planning to finish the excavation next weekend so there will be more news then.
