Day three: 3rd May 2012

Today the focus has been on defining the features we have revealed beneath the demolition layers.  After removing the top soil and rubble with mattocks, the students have trowelled the loose soil still covering the walls, drains and midden areas. These features will then be recorded by hand with measured scale drawings, written descriptions of the features and surrounding areas, and photographs. As we continue to remove the layers surrounding these features it is important that we have records of what we have removed from site so we can begin to understand the phases of the building itself, and the chronology of the destruction of the house.
