The excavation continues

As the machine excavation of topsoil continued to reveal archaeological features so the archaeological excavation area continued to expand until by December 2016, theĀ GUARD Archaeology team of nine archaeologists had discovered around 1000 archaeological features spread over a 17,700 sqm area.

 

These features comprise numerous pits, post-holes and ditches. Many of these features are clustered together in patterns that can be recognised as house structures of various shapes, from elliptical, round and rectangular. From the various artefacts (pot sherds and flints mainly) that are beginning to be recovered, these houses appear to be prehistoric.
