Thanks to the tireless efforts of digger driver Adam and dumper driver Kevin, we now have a site ready to dig! The cabins arrived and we set up the finds tent, so this is going to be the focus of a lot of activity in the next 4 weeks.

At 0800 tomorrow morning, the machines will be on site, to turn 600 square metres of grass into an excavation trench. I'll be posting pictures live from the machining as we kick off the seventh season of the Dorchester project. Follow for updates during our setup week and be sure to join us from June 30th through July 26, for daily info on what we find in our excavations!
