One week down, two weeks to go!

Hello all! It's been an eventful week here at SERF with all three of our trenches busy with exciting archaeology. Our students at Wellhill have been exposing features and excavating Neolithic and Bronze-Age features. A number of prehistoric pottery sherds have also been found by a number of our students, as well as other finds such as pitch stone. In Leadketty evidence of a timber circle is appearing; one of the timber circles appears to have burnt clay within it which suggests that the timber post was possibly burnt in situ. Exciting things are also happening at the Dun Knock, where evidence of the ditches are appearing. There is also an interesting possible linear rock feature which we will hopefully shine some light on in the next few days. Some prehistoric pottery has also emerged as well as a stone tool and some vitrified stone. Students and volunteers are working well together and lots of people from the local community have been coming along to listen in to the site tours and visit our displays at the Old School. In the next few days more features (and hopefully finds!) should be appearing on all the sights so watch this space!

Just a quick reminder that our open day is on Saturday 4th July where students will be giving tours of all the sites and there will be more displays and finds in the Old School as well as Dr Kenny Brophy's aerial photography workshop at 10am. There will also be lots of other activities happening throughout the day so pop down and give us a visit!
