I also took some video of everyone hard at work in the trench, which you can see on the Gallery page. Here too are some images of two of the more attractive finds of the day - a New Forest ware 'bag' beaker type 49.2; and a tiny hollow glass bead, dark green in colour:
We finished the day watching Arthur fly his big radio-controlled glider over the field in the bright sunshine after everyone else had gone home.
