Day 4 - The Paddock Trench

The Trench Progresses: Jamie in green, Andie in black, Carol in lilac and Fiona in red.

Hey, Jamie here. I’m about to enter into junior honours Archaeology at the University of Glasgow. This is my first time attending the SERF field school and so far I’m learning lots and having a great time, even in the rain. Today in the paddock we continued to strip back the orange brown context layer. We didn’t find as much as we had done in the topsoil, but that was to be expected. However, something interesting did pop up; another piece of pottery. We showed this to Dr Ewan Campbell, and along with the other interesting piece that Alison found yesterday, he came to the conclusion that they may be from the same item, and also that they may be Roman! Whilst this went on Fiona continued to excavate her sondage deeper and she found a few pieces of medieval pottery. The weather could have been better, but all in all a very productive day.
