Today we continued excavating more of the north end of the robber trench. As we worked down we came across a large stone very similar to that found in the other end of the robber trench.
The half section through the probable post/column hole in the cobbles was completed today and it goes all the way down to subsoil.
As we cleared away more soil from the east side of the trench we uncovered… guess what? MORE cobbles!!! These seem to be of better quality than those originally uncovered last year. Our dreams of finding a lovely intact tiled interior floor were shattered but we were still very pleased to find this fine cobbling!
Some of the finds discovered today included glass, a roof tile and a lump of dark limestone type material amongst small pieces of pottery.
