CM517 - a cold and rainy Day 5
Updated: Aug 21, 2021
Today we had a smaller team on site but what we lacked in numbers we made up for in productivity. From the outset it was quite a chilly day - almost too cold for short-sleeved shirts - and in the afternoon it was spitting with rain.
Juliet split the dig team into three:
1. The five ladies continuing work on the darker soil at the north end of the trench, that may or may not be the continuation of the enclosure ditch;

2. Mark and David working on sectioning the three postholes just south of the dark patch, that appear roughly equi-spaced, in a diagonal line and with the sockets lined with large flints;
3. The two new team members working on the southern end of the trench where there seems to be a layer of packed flints again.
The postholes are interesting and are alike in their construction - similar-sized holes encircled with large flints.
