The Carshalton and District History and Archaeology Society started excavating the site of the proposed flower bed between the belfry and the wall of the sheds area. We have set the trench and removed what little turf there was and have dug out about 10cm of topsoil. It’s really too dry – the ground is hard and the lack of moisture tends to reduce tell-tale colour variations in the soil. Its also hot digging so we need to work fairly slowly. Not much in the way of results but I wouldn’t expect it at this stage. We have got reason to believe the foundations of one of the two houses are buried here. See what happens tomorrow.
