The morning came and greeted us with rain, and lots of it. Almost horizontal rain.
So after an hour or so the rain abated slightly and, although the trench was very soggy and muddy, we could get back to work! We continued to remove more of the 50cm extension of the trench on the west and a further 5m by 5m square of trench was de-turfed (you can see all of this in the image below.)
A couple of finds cropped up – some china (pictured below), window glass, green bottle glass and a few iron nails.
By the end of the day everyone was covered in mud and soaked to the bone – it seems that waterproofs aren’t waterproof in the Welsh rain. But we got a lot of work done!
