July 6th- clean clean clean

Intense cleaning of both sites commenced today, with some stunning results for the Neolithic trench. The cursus is not quite visible in the picture below, but the ring ditch is very clearly showing through the surrounding soils.

On the Late Roman site, teams of students and volunteers formed trowelling lines and worked their way back across the site to help reveal features obscured by the particularly dry soil. Many pits are present and in the next few days we will dig into them.

Today's exciting find was a form of colour coated Roman fineware that had not previously been identified.
