A dry day was spent on site, although the round was damp from recent rain. More soil was removed and sieved from the spoil heap in the loading bay yielding bone, metal objects, plaster, pottery and more gun cartridges.

Sam continued on in Anteroom with Test pit 5, going down through compacted sandy soil to discover a nice piece of slipware covering a hole in the North West corner. He continued down with a sondage and found it filled with loose bricks.

Margaret completed drawing the plan view of the trench on the Walkway with its drainage channel beneath the edge of a row of mortared roof tiles which now proves that the roof continued all the way along.

The season is nowdrawing to a close and there cannot be many more weeks left working here. It has been a very enjoyable site to work on and we are always deeply indebted to Tony Symonds, the land owner, for allowing us to continue excavating it over the years.
