We didn’t have a lot to do today which was fortunate as a lot of time was lost to rain. We did investigate the early foundation that I mentioned a few days ago. It appears to be part of the original structure and probably supported an internal wall. The odd thing is that it runs into the edge of the trench and should have been seen in the 1997 excavation. It wasn’t and I don’t understand why. I need to think about this and check various things in the 1997 papers.
There is still some recording to do in the trench then there is backfilling, finds processing and report writing. I hope to have the whole job finished this year but may be optimistic.
