We started excavating a layer which was slightly clayey and looked like it might be below the 19th and 20th century garden disturbance. And then we came across a what looked like a wall foundation in one corner of the trench. It was in the right sort of position to be the original front wall of the house we are looking for. Further excavation produced promising looking deposits and then at the end of the day some 19th or 20th century stuff turned up. I think we are still in deposits disturbed by recent gardening. Proceedings continue tomorrow.
